Use SFTP for read/write access to AOL member space
Authored by: stutemp1 on Jun 13, '06 09:09:52AM
I had never used the "hometown.aol.com" URL. I had always used "members.aol.com" for the old FTP URL. Hometown was apparently added as an alias to the same member space when they added the online website creation/template software.

To create a website WITHOUT the annoying AOL Hometown banner, upload your webpage files using SFTP hint then use the following URL to access them...

http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/(yourAOLusername)/index.html

The inclusion of "_ht_a" in the URL and hyperlinks within your web pages bypasses the built-in Hometown banner load.

AOL Connect, Pictures, Radio etc. are stand alone OS X programs. AOL Connect integrates the dial-up authentication with OS X's "Internet Connect" dialer. The others allow access to AOL services that cannot be accessed via web browser. They can all be downloaded here:

I'm not a "chatter" so I don't know if the chatrooms are available through AIM or if you still need the full AOL client program for them.
