Hello Captwally,

It may be that you're NOT using FTP settings for the publishing settings of Visual Studio. The server we use here is a Linux-based server and NOT windows, so it's possible (and probable) that Visual Studio is attempting to connect using the typical connections it would use with Windows server. In this case, you need to change your publishing settings and use the FTP option. Your ftp authentication information is based on your Cpanel user name and password. The port number for ftp is 21, and the ftp URL is typically your website URL as long as it's pointed to our servers. Additionally, if you need a directory setting, then it should be publishing the files into the /public_html/ folder.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
