Blueyonder webspace

  babybell 19:44 03 Dec 2004

Does anyone use blueyonder for their webspace. I cannot get WS_FTP Pro to connect, it says my user name is invalid, and i have contacted blue yonder technical support but have had no reply. I have tried registering different email aliasis but nothing works, did anyone else have this problem. Also what is there webspace like anyway, do they have advert pop ups or anything like that? Cheers

What are you typing in as your username? Is it your e-mail address?

You should type in the name of the webspace, i.e., click here where xxx is the username and the password is whatever you set.

Have you tried connecting to it throught windows explorer using the Web Folder? I connect this way and it works fine for me.

I keep forgetting it converts URL's to links. It should read:-

http : // www. xxx. pwp. blueyonder. co. uk

Which OS are you running?

In Win98, simply open Windows Explorer and click on Web Folders under My Computer. It will ask you for your username and password.

In Windows XP, open My Network Places

Cick on Add a New Network Place

Type in your website address (including the "http://" part)

Follow the instructions and then save the connection.

Now, you should be able to open the web folder as if it was a folder on your hard drive.

Sorry, follow the instructions above for both Windows 98 and Windows XP. Web folders is in Windows 98 under My Computer and in XP under My Network Places.
