  1. Getting started with GreenGeeks does not answer my question. I have built a website with Dreamweaver and it’s ready to upload. What do I tell Dreamweaver when it asks: 1) FTP Address; 2) Username; 3) Password; 4) Root Directory; and 5) Is Port 21 correct. Where would I find this information anywhere on your site? I’ve wasted too much time trying to find this information. I’m sure that the location for this information would have other helpful tools for beginners. Thank you.
