Do I rate web storage space?

When I signed up for AT&T DSL service, I forgot to inquire about how much storage is available to upload files?  This is something that I've taken for granted since the days of dial up.  When I asked a tech support guy what the URL was to access it (my guess would be username.home.att.net) and the FTP server name, ID, and password, he assured me there was no such thing.  Another tech rep thought I was talking about customizing att.net as my home page.  When it was obvious she didn't have a clue, I thanked her and said good by.

 

The correct acronym may be PWS (personal web space or storage).

 

So what is the story?

Thanks for replying.  I don't believe this is what I had in mind.  I just want space where I can upload my own home page that can be accessed directly from a browser, e.g., blahBlahBlah.net.  I didn't see any mention of this or a ftp server address.

 

As I said orginally, this is something i took for granted based on my experiences with dial up and cable ISP's.

PS.  As an example, this is the URL for my homepage at comcast, which for some reason seems to be still available, at least from my machine.

"Beginning September 12, 2012, you can no longer create a new Personal webpage. We will continue to support existing pages."

 

More info here:  AT&T Personal webpage

 

So unless you already have personal web pages (PWP), you are out of luck.  I moved my websites to KVC Hosting 2 years ago and have been very satisfied with their service.
