Website error: Could Not Load Type

I've developed an ASP.NET website that runs fine on my local WinXP IIS and on my server's IIS, both are IIS6.0

The site uses a master page that has the following declaration:
<%@ Master Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="HVOA.master.vb" Inherits="HVOAWebsite.HVOA" %>

The site will actually be hosted at an external hosting site, specifically GoDaddy.Com. So I moved the files to their site under a new virtual directory that, from what I can tell, has been defined as an application.

But when I try to run the site I get the following error:

Server Error in '/HVOAWebsite' Application.

Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.1433; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.1433

Can anyone tell me why this is happening. I've contacted GoDaddy's tech support and all they can tell me is that their hosting site is working fine so it must be a scripting error.

Thanks, Herb

I figured this one out. It was user error! My error.
Turns out that I neglected to upload the BIN directory to the hosting site. That's why it couldn't find the namespace defined in the master page declaration.

What a dumb ass!
