Cannot connect to FTP server

  1. I recently signed up to winhost. I purchased my domain from godaddy prior to signing up.

    I have not been able to connect to the ftp server listed on my winhost site control panel ( using either visual studio or coffecup ftp.

    When I attempt to ping from a cmd prompt, I get an error that the ping request could not find host. However, it pings successfully at

    Also if i go to the website url, I see a standard godaddy page indicating the site is still parked for free by them.

    Do I have to transfer my domain to winhost, or is there something else I am missing?
  2. After more research, i realize that i need to change my nameserver on godaddy. I've just completed this step and will see if this fixes the problem.
