Virgin Media/Ntl/Telewest Blueyonder Webspace Uploading

You need to be an Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media customer and know your default username and password to access the FREE 55MB of web space. If you do not know your password and username then click here for details. To upload to your web space is very easy and FREE, you DON'T need to pay for an upload FTP server.  There are 3 FREE upload options detailed below, I hope you find them useful. You will need to be actually on a Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media connection to upload, it will not work from other connections.

 

PLEASE NOTE:- You will need to make sure you main start page is called index.htm or index.html or it will not be able to be viewed correctly on the web.

 

** If you haven't created a website yet then you can use FREE NVU (rivals paid for programs like FrontPage, Web Expressions and Dreamweaver the download also has a simple tutorial) If you need a free email form included in the site without adverts and pop ups then use free email form with auto-responders too**

Details on how to get your username and password

Your WEB SPACE username and password may not be the same as your email username and password if you have changed your password or made another email address from the default from when you first registered with Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media. You need to call customer service on 150 from an Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media  line or 0845 454 0000 to have them check and reset your WEB SPACE password and username (you can also change the web space name to any other Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media  email address you have made while you are on the phone). You might need to be pushy when calling customer service to have the WEB SPACE address changed as most customer service advisors don't know you are allowed to do it. Contrary to what it says on Ntl, Blueyonder or Virgin Media's help pages just changing your password online only changes it for your emails, your WEB SPACE password needs to be changed through the customer service department.
