NTL Homepage - help required

  georgemac 11:36 03 Feb 2004

I want to use the free space offered by my ISP for our website we are building.

I have uploaded the files to the correct ftp server location using smart ftp, and can see the files on the NTL server.

However when I open my homepage http:// click here /my account name (I have added spaces so it does not put a hyperlink) it just says the page cannot be displayed.

In the root directory are files index.htm main.htm links.htm and title.htm and even if I add these filenames to the end of the link to my homepage, it (IE6) still cannot find anything.

Hopefully it is something simple. In the meantime I am uploading it to another free hosting site, so will check it there and see if it comes up OK

no problems with the other free hosting site.

I deleted all the files on NTL ftp server with smart ftp, and loaded a simple webpage, I still cannot get anything at my home page location.

Anyone using NTL webspace able to help?

I use my freespace now and again with ntl without any hassle.

When did you put the pages onto their server? I was told by one of their helpline people that it can take upto 24 hours to come online. It was not always the case but I did find that at times it seemed to take forever to update/upload pages.

I see somthing wrong with your Address. you will not get any page found if you type in w w w.homepage.ntlworld. com drop the ww w part just have HT TP://Homepage.ntlworld.com/your page

Ive tried this with other sites hosted with NTLworld and this seems to be problem. i am also withNTL but sadly do not yet use the free webspace. if this isnt the problem please get back!
