When I publish from Xara I get the message: The server name or host could not be resolved.

If you encounter the error 'The Server name or host could not be resolved' when publishing from Xara, please initially check to ensure the FTP Address you have entered in the Publishing tab are correct.

Note, hosts will often provide you with a host address beginning with ftp://   such as You do not need to enter the ftp:// part of the address in the FTP Host address field.

You could try your details in a FTP tool such as FileZilla or WinSCP to check if they work correctly there also. If it fails to connect here then please contact your host provider.
