TalkTalk - free webspace

Here's a little bit of information you may be interested in if you use TalkTalk as your broadband supplier. As part of your contract with them, you get 15meg of free web hosting. This isn't exactly a generous amount of space - but can come in handy if you've got a club or small business you'd like a website for, but don't want to fork out your hard earned cash!

What is TalkTalk webspace

The free webspace from TalkTalk allows you to host a website for the world to see! The webspace you have is very basic - there isn't any "web page builder" installed, so to get things working you will need a basic knowledge of HTML.

The 15meg allowance you're given won't allow you to run the BBC website, but it could well be enough for a small website, with a few pages of information. It's the images which take up lots of space, so keeping the images to a minimum will allow you to have more pages.

The name of your website

The name of your free TalkTalk webspace site is a sub-domain of TalkTalk. In English this means your website will be called [yourname].talktalk.net; where [yourname] is the name you choose.

Put it all together

The tools you need to get your TalkTalk free webspace up and running are all freely available. So with a little perseverance and effort your webspace will soon be available for everyone to see.

  1. Configure your website name within the account management section your TalkTalk account. This should be something like "my services" > "Broadband" > "Manage Webspace". The image at the top of the screen is a screen-shot of our account screen, which may well help.
  2. Create your website. Notepad (which comes free with Windows) is all you need to edit some basic HTML. You may find it useful to use a HTLM template for your screen layout - see the TalkTalk Webspace example below.
  3. Transfer (or, to use the technical acronym FTP) your HTML onto the TalkTalk Webspace server. Filezilla is the tool we use to FTP files.

  4. That's it. your TalkTalk webspace is up and running. This is a very basic guide to using your TalkTalk webspace - it may take a little perseverance to get things up and running.

    Example of TalkTalk Webspace being used

    As you've probably guessed, we've setup a few pages on the TalkTalk webspace! You can our own website at internetaffiliation.talktalk.net.

    The design was created using the Pure.CSS template, which makes setting up a website much easier, as you don't need to know an awful lot of HTML to get up and running. The exact template we used was the Pure.CSS "Marketing" template.

    If you're trying to setup your own TalkTalk free webspace project, but you're spending more time crying into your keyboard than getting your TalkTalk webhosting working, send me an email at john@internetaffiliation.co.uk and I'll try to help. I wouldn't say I was a complete guru with the TalkTalk Webspace, but I have got our own site up and running.
