    Default Anyone here good with FTP?

    Made a flash animated/interactive website, well messed with a bunch of stuff and threw one together but for the life of me can't host it.. I know how to host HTML sites using godaddy and filezilla, basically my question: is there any trick to hosting flash sites?

    No. No tricks involved in the hosting part.

    Just embed the swf into html and upload all the files. (Flash has the option to create the html automatically, or you can swfobject).

    Does everything work when hosted on your computer? Does your hosting provider support flash? I think different hosting providers have different levels of hosting, some of which don't support flash. Your not trying to view it on your iPhone are you?

    I think he's looking for a free hoster.

    theoretically you could upload the swf file and embed its new online url in the html, then upload the html file and link to it. but I think spending a couple of bucks on a hosting service is definitely the better alternative

    FTP is sometime a synonym for FTP site.

    Flash is executed client side. (opposed to PHP, Asp, .net, java etc. which is run on the host (and therefore will need a host supporting the specific scripting language)). So for flash the host will only need to host the file and serve the html. Hence all hosts that allows you to upload files (that'd be just about all, never heard of one that doesn't since that'd be kind of pointless).

    Go to hostgator, buy a cheap server, embed the .swf in a html file, and upload the html file as index.html to the root folder or base folder of the server using filezilla. Easy stuff!

    But then the domain is an issue and the speed will suck... Just pay the $7 a month that it will cost you with hostgator or godaddy...
