FTP site access by domain

Good morning,

I haven't tried this setup yet and I started having second thoughts on whether I set it up correctly.

I have registered a domain name to be used to access our FTP server. I have the domain pointing to our IP. My question is. the domain is www.xxxxxx.com ,,, when someone needs to access it... Are they going to be entering www or ftp while using IE? Or is there a specific type of domain for a FTP server?

Thanks in advance.

can you clairify "yourhostname"? Is that what I named the ftp server... In my case it is data.

Irwin SantosComputer Integration SpecialistCommented:
there is a name that you associated to your server that has this ftp service. Usually it is the name of the computer.. generally you either will have the hostname or an alias in your DNS referencing "FTP"..

so it could be of the following....

hostname.domain.com

ftp.domain.com

depends on how you set it up in Internet Information Server and your DNS configuration
