    It sounds like your hosting may be blocking FTP access, which is quite common for free hosting providers.

    You should definitely contact your hosting provider about this.

    I think this was a problem with http://www.host1free.com hosting as they had some problems with FTP, but I use box12 and it works as a charm.
