Personal Webspace

Quixnet provides you with 10MB of storage space on the internet.

You must obtain an FTP program to upload files to your webspace. In the instructions below, we are using a free product called CORE FTP because of its relative ease of use. You can download it by clicking here. Click on the "Download Now" link and save it to your computer. Once it has finished downloading, double-click on the icon it made wherever you saved it and follow the prompts to install. Then come back and finish our guide to get you connected to your personal webspace.

  • If the program is not already open from the fresh install you just did, open it by clicking on its icon.
  • If this is the first time you are using the FTP program, you need to set up a place to send the files. If you have already set up your Quixnet account in the FTP program, continue to the next step
