I have recently been given the job for webmaster. The transition was not perfect and as of now, I have the user id and password but not the ftp host. Is there a site where I can use the domain name to find its FTP host? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Using "cmd prompt"you can always ping the host name and get the IP of the server and try connecting to it with the given user name & password...

If your domain name is coliotz.com, it is most likely your FTP Host will be ftp.coliotz.com. I hope this helps.
