Free Hosting

All domains on our Nameservers now have access to 1MB of free webspace (no server-side scripting facilities i.e. no PHP, Perl etc., ). The hosting does support full HTML and CSS aswell as client-side Javascripts. We add NO advertising on this webspace (it is proper hosting). If you optimise your images then you could get something like a 5-7 page site in this.

In-order for the free hosting to be active the Domain has to be set as ‘Parked‘ (Set in your Account Manager under Domains > Website Settings).

Free hosting can be used one of two ways:

1. Using the WebFTP (single file upoads) in your Account Manager.

By simply uploading your files to the WebFTP root folder with one of them being a index.htm or index.html. Once the index file has been uploaded and you view your site URL then you will see the parked page is now replaced with your new index page (You may need to use your browser refresh button).

2. Using a standard FTP program or Web Design package

For muliple files it’s best to use a FTP program for which there are many and some being free. The settings required are as follows:

Host server: homepages.ukservers.net
Username: {yourdomain name without the www.}
Password: {Your Account Manager password}
Domain Folder: {leave blank - upload to root}
Port: 21 {default}
Passive FTP: Enabled

Webspace = 1MB, No server-side scripting
Upload index.htm or .html to activate

Once the index file has been uploaded and you view your site URL then you will see the parked page is now replaced with your new index page (You may need to use your browser refresh button).
