I don't know what the FTP address is!
I'm hosting a site and I have no clue what to type in as the FTP address.

Just use yourdomain.com.

If you're using a subdomain, like yourdomain.dreamhosters.com, use that.

If your domain hasn't been set up yet on our servers, you can still connect directly to your server for ftp at: servername.dreamhost.com. You get your server's name in the welcome emails sent to you when your ftp account is first created!

Also note, your FTP username/password combo is different from your web ID username/password combo!

If you forget your ftp username, you can find it at our web panel's "Users > Users" area. If you forget your ftp password you can have it emailed to you from the "Users > Passwords" area. If you forget your account information completely, just try and log into the web panel and click the "Forgot your WebID or password" link!
