Web space

I originally was a client of Freenetname and used the free webs pace provided for my web pages.
Freenetname then morphed into MadasaFish  and subsequently to Pus Net
I am trying to amend details on my web page but unfortunately cannot do so
Any suggestion / help gratefully received
Regards

Re: Web space

You can connect to your webspace using any FTP client of your choosing. If you don't have one installed then you can do worse than Filezilla.
The FTP server address you need is www.users.freenetname.co.uk
Your  username is the same as the one you use to log into the Madasafish website (minus the '@freenetname.co.uk' bit).
Your password is your regular Freenetname account password.
I've checked things from this side and those details seem to be working:
~$ ftp www.users.freenetname.co.uk
Connected to www.users.freenetname.co.uk.
220 ProFTPD Server [freenetname.co.uk]

Password: [REDACTED]
230 User [REDACTED] logged in

Using binary mode to transfer files.

Re: Web space

The URL used to access the site should be http://www.users.freenetname.co.uk/~username (with your account username replacing 'username') *
This points at the 'public_html' folder on your webspace (which you don't seem to have). I've created that folder now and placed a test file in there which you should be able to browse to.
Hopefully you can work things out from there?
* Edit: Alternatively you can also use your .co.uk domain without the trailing slash/username etc.

Re: Web space

Hello
Many thanks once again
Copying and pasting from your post, using my user name, I get "This web site belongs to a customer of Madasafish and is currently not in use. If you are the owner of this siteand you would like help on how to load information ..."
 
Using my domain name http://www.austerfield.org.uk doesn't produce anything

Re: Web space

Now I'm truly confused, unless we're lookign at different accounts? Huh
If I browse to your domain name, I see the attached (which is the file I put there).
Same applies browsing to the ~username variant.

Re: Web space

Definitely the same account. My 'it works!' file is in that 'public_HTML' folder, titled 'index.html'.

Re: Web space

Hello Bob
Yes, I can see your folder when in my FTP client
T
But am still unable to access using either Internet Explorer or Mozilla on both log on -  Freenetname users or www.austerfield
Something appears most odd - is it my end or in the server?

Re: Web space

What IP does your domain name resolve to Brian? From a command window, try an nslookup. This is what you should see:
C:\Windows\System32>nslookup www.austerfield.org.uk
Server:  dsldevice.lan
Address:  [REDACTED]
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.users.freenetname.co.uk
Addresses:  212.159.8.151
          212.159.9.151
Aliases:  www.austerfield.org.uk

Re: Web space

Hello Bob and Jim
If I go through Google I can find the site OK
However if I simply enter http://www.austerfield.org.uk I am directed to a site under Brian Austerfield heading Curriculum Vitae which says the site is the page is not in use
Obviously other persons entering http://www.austerfield.org.uk would also be directed to the same site  - can this be deleted?
Regards
Brian
However all I can see through Google is Bob's comment "it works"
