Personal Web Space



For each MetroCast Internet account, personal web space is provided to you. The personal web space consists of 80 MB of space, as well as 250 MB of email space.

To access your personal web space please select your location below:

New Hampshire & Maine:


  • Log on to the web through your cable modem


  • In the title bar of Internet Explorer type the following:

    ftp://(username)@home.metrocast.net

    Username - is your e-mail account name
    (i.e. janedoe@metrocast.net would type in ftp://janedoe@www.metrocast.net; in order to access her personal web space)

You will then be prompted to enter your username and password. Your username again is your e-mail username and the password is the password you use for your e-mail account. Once it connects the left side will show your computer and the right side will show your directory on our server. You will want to place files to be viewed in the public/www directory.

If you cannot use Internet Explorer to connect, you can use an FTP client, (Frontpage is not supported) to connect to the webspace.

One of the easiest FTP programs to use is WS_FTP LE and that can be found here:
