Orpheus Internet Services Ltd

Web Services available for Orpheus hosted webpages

All Orpheus Internet subscribers get 50MB of free webspace, linked to a sub-domain on the orpheusweb.co.uk (or orpheuswww.co.uk) domain. For example, a user called John Smith might have the sub-domain 'jsmith', giving a homepage URL of http://jsmith.orpheusweb.co.uk

As a special offer to our subscribers, the name you choose for your homepage URL can be chosen freely, subject to it being available on a first come, first served basis. A list of subscriber homepages is available at www.orpheusweb.co.uk/users.html

Please note that your webspace is created for you on demand, meaning that when you first open an Orpheus account, your webspace is not automatically activated until you contact us and specify what sub-domain name you would like. We then aim to setup your webspace and provide FTP login details within 48 hours.
