  1. I have installed and setup BulletProof FTP Server. It is working correctly. I can definitely access it from another computer by using my IP address (i.e. - ftp://24.184.x.xxx). But how do I give it a name (i.e. - ftp://serverx.milky.com) so Users do not have to remember my IP address?

    You need to get a domain name.

    If you have a static IP then you may get one from your ISP for free or cheap.

    There are also free services that work with dynamic IP addresses like DynDNS.

    If you already have a domain name then you have to define the server's name and address in the DNS server your domain is registered with.
