Thanks again, Fox. You have inspired so many people. I am in your Facebook group, but haven't contributed much other than a few likes here and there.
I'm still sort of wrapping my head around how to approach a business that I think has a terrible website. I can feel the fear and anxiety creeping in knowing that I'm going to have to make a phone call.
I was talking to my mom today who is starting a charitable organization. I offered to build the site for her and she agreed. She has the domain, but never pursued developing it yet. This will give me the opportunity to get started at my own pace (since she's not in a hurry to have a website yet) and get a site for my portfolio!
I have a question. She is using iPower for her domain and hosting. Their FileManager isn't like the FileManager I have seen before. I use NameCheap. When I try to upload the FTP through Brackets, it's not grabbing the files. It will only grab the folders. They suggest FTP through FileZilla. I was going to contact support, but their live chat took forever so I canceled it. Any thoughts? I'm considering just looking at how to transfer her somewhere else.
Secondly, let's say I just want to develop the site and "host" it so she can see it without it actually going out to the internet. How would I privately "host" it only for her so that it doesn't get indexed?
I use filezilla to upload, you should only need the IP, FTP username and password.
As for the second question I believe its a robots.txt file bit this is not something I have much experience in - my customers want the exact opposite!
