I can't get started

I can't get started

(OP)
I have a BT account, which includes the right to web space.  I got Namo to set up a basic web.  I filled out the 'Remote sites' thing which my BT details, as far as I could figure them.  It acted like it was set up, and then offered to create a page.  And then failed to do so.

Have I misunderstood?  I have a background in mainframe programming and while I've used PCs a lot, web publishing is new to me.  What I set was

CODE

Host       uk.geocities.com
Port       21
Directiory /GwydionM
User Name  GwydionM@btineternet.com
Password   secret
ULR        http://uk.geocities.com/GwydionM@btineternet.com
Actually my password isn't secret, nor is my BT name GwydionM, but that's the basics.  Can anyone figure it?

RE: I can't get started

I don't class myself an expert but I don't think the @ should be there, more likely a . - The @ is more email address not username. Check on BT website for information regarding how user name should be. Must admit I always use a separate ftp programme for uploading but thats what I'm used to.
