Plusnet Free Website space - Access problem

I have a website http://www.nemosphotography.co.uk/  hosted on Plusnet FREE WEBSITE SPACE.

I want to do some updating and other work on it... but have forgotten the user name & password..

Is there any way that PN can give me a "reminder" so that I can again access it via the FTP client ?

@shutter 

It's ages since I played around with my PN free webspace and haven't got my present FTP client set up with the details needed to login, but ISTR that many years ago we had to use the same password for everything, i.e. Internet connection, email and FTP.

That may well have changed or I could be plain wrong.

Probably a silly question, but have you tried your standard password?

@shutter 

Just a followup ...

I just successfully logged in to my PN webspace using the following;

Host;   ftp.plus.net

Username:   My plusnet 'accountname'

Password:    My 'standard' PN password

 

Edit:   Although perhaps it's different for hosted sites such as the one you refer to in your OP   Undecided

@RobPN AFAIK ftp access to the free website space is always via the main account username and pw. If a domain is pointed to it it makes no difference.

@shutter the ftp details are shown in the member centre under manage account, manage your web space,  standard web space ( unless it ccgi space! )

Even if I uses   ftp.nemosphotography.co.uk

So... it`s looking like I have a "password problem"....( although I have not changed it since I started with PN ! ! !  )
