I am trying to verify my website on Google.  Can you help?

 

I tried to upload [googleea3a9d3c9eb48065.html] to WordPress per these instructions:

 

Recommended: HTML file uploadUpload an HTML file to your site.

1. Download this HTML verification file. [googleea3a9d3c9eb48065.html]

2. Upload the file to http://proptandfitness.com/

3. Confirm successful upload by visiting http://proptandfitness.com/googleea3a9d3c9eb48065.html in your browser.

4. Click Verify below.

To stay verified, don't remove the HTML file, even after verification succeeds.

 

When I do I receive this message:  “googleea3a9d3c9eb48065.html” has failed to upload.
Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

 

Thank you!

Gina

How are you trying to upload this? Through wordpress? It could be that your chmod settings are not correct.  You should really be using some sort of ftp client to directly upload this to your root.  Wordpress should  not be involved.  

 

I can tell you the issue is definitely something related to your server and/or the software on it.  I see you are hosted with HostGator. Your best bet is to reach out to them to help you with this.

I was able to fix the problem by calling my domain hosting company.  There was a different way to remedy the problem and they helped walk me through it.

 

Thank you!
