    I hope someone can answer this for me.

    If you setup an acocunt for a customer can they use frontpage extensions to upload their site before the site dns goes accross. ? I ask because i have a customer who cannot do it and upload with a IP address.?
    Any points i need to take on board please let me know.

    FrontPage only publishes to domain names. (I could be wrong though)
    You can do it by 'tricking' their computer into using the domain name.

    They need to change their HOSTS file on their computer. Usually in: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    Add an entry like this:
    xxx.xx.xx.xxx domainname

    I don't remember if you have to restart windows after doing that. But this should help them get through the propagation period.

    Also, remind them to change the hosts file back in a few days. No need to leave a 'mess' behind.

    On Windows 2000 and XP a restart is not required - the hosts file kicks in immediately on saving. However, on Windows 9x you need to restart first. ;)
