FM Go does not use the http protocol to connect to a served database. It uses the fmp protocol.

Your hosting service should really be able to answer this question for you... However, you just need to enable FileMaker Network Sharing - the same as when enabling FileMaker Pro access - and you can then login with Go as well with the same authentication info.
- i contacted host
- said not to use http use host name at triple8
can you connect to the hosted database with FMPro?
Do you need to use VPN or something?
You NEED VPN if that is how you connect FMPro to FMServer. Open remote is the next step. If (and only if VPN is the case), then FMGo must also use the VPN. I have several clients that are this way. I was asking if the OP was connecting at all this way to the database.
"I can connect to it with Safari." in the original post probably means that it's Web Published (but not necessarily, as this may be some sort of "control panel" or even FMServer Admin. We need clarification.
