At this time new webspace creation is unavailabile. Please see We're Grandfathering Webspace for more information.
Your Webspace address will be your username.shawwebspace.ca. "Your username" being the part of your Shaw email address that precedes @shaw.ca
At this time you cannot use a domain name for your Webspace address. You must use the address generated automatically when you create your Webspace, which is determined by your Shaw Email address.
No, we are not yet able to provide this function.
Many editing programs have built-in FTP (File Transfer Protocol) features for transferring your files to Webspace.
You can also use a standalone FTP program such as WS_FTP, CuteFTP, or Transmit.
You will need the following information:
- FTP Hostname: ftp.shaw.ca
- Username: the part of your Shaw Email address that precedes @shaw.ca
- Password: your Shaw Email/Webspace password
Please Note: FTP uploading is only available on legacy Webspace accounts. This means that this option will not be available for most Webspace customers.
If you give others your username and password, they can publish to your Webspace, but only from a Shaw Internet connection.
We do not, however, recommend sharing your password.
For security reasons, users from outside Shaw's network cannot connect to our FTP servers.
We are not yet able to provide any backup functionality. We recommend you keep a backup copy of you Webspace contents on your computer.
Webspace has cached - or saved - the previous copy of the page in order to load the page more quickly. This is a function of your Internet browser, which means that you can get rid of the old page through a hard refresh by holding down the CTRL (control) key, and then pushing the F5 key on your keyboard.
