Did you get this notice?
Looks like they are phasing that webspace out.
No I have not seen that particular notice (probably because most of the email from AT&T gets tagged as spam by their own email servers), but I knew that new customers could not create PWP accounts for quite some time (probably since at least a year ago) and that the service was only available as a grandfathered service.
For the time being all of my PWP accounts are still active and I still use them for non critical off-site storage. If they go away, I am not losing anything and I do have other on-line storage available to take its place.
FWIW, some of my AT&T PWP accounts are associated with ancient BellSouth ISDN accounts that have been closed for over a decade, so when I say I won't be losing anything if those accounts get closed, I really mean that I won't be losing anything.
I also suspect that even if they do shutdown http access to those sites, that ftp access may still be active (and that is primarily how I use it). That happened a couple of years ago when AT&T decided to purge all content related to the former worldnet.att.net customers. Some AT&T IT manager got carried away and shutdown all http access to all of the PWP sites that used the att.net domain, but ftp access remained active. After a great outcry from effected customers, they reluctantly restored http access for all but the forbidden worldnet customers. But it was shortly after that incident that they started making it difficult (if not impossible) for most new customers to create a PWP site.--
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
