    I made an html file from keynote, the index.html is accompanied by hundreds of files in a folder called “Assets” and its subfolders. Is there an easy way to upload the “Assets” folder? Thanks!

    Hi. I created my first web-hosting account in my life about 24 hours ago, deciding to use Arvixe. I’ve been reading page after pages at Arvixe support/forums about how to upload html files with nothing making much sense. This explanation by Arian Jahansouz is the first simple step-by-step explanation I’ve seen.
    Now I need to do the settings for my email contact form. I’ve created the html file for the contact form itself, but I see no simple Arvixe explanation of how to actually set it up. Sorry this post is unrelated to the original questions, but since Arian Jahansouz gave such a simple answer to one problem, I’m hoping I can get a simple answer to my new problem.

      Hello John M,

      I am sorry to hear you’re having difficulty understanding our other resources. What you’re describing will differ depending on the type of contact form you have set up so it is hard to explain without knowing what you currently have and what is left to do.

      Can you reach out to me directly at alex.ali [at] (replace [at] with @)? I’d be more than happy to see it through with you.
