I don't want to expose my main sonic account name (used for user mailbox admin only). I would like to host some photos, files for bbs sites with limited uploads), but only expose the users mailbox logon name (eg dragonsclaw)., not my sonic account name
Unfortunately, the hosting and FTP directories only work off of principal account names and not mailboxes.
If you have connectivity service, one option would be to take advantage of our free Personal Hosting
offer. With that promotion, you register a new domain name (for free!) and in turn we give you free hosting for that domain as long as you continue to pay the yearly domain renewal fee (about $14.95/year).
By registering for a domain name with the Personal Hosting offer, you can then host and link your files to the domain name instead of sonic.net/~username. As a bonus, you can also create email aliases so that you can forward mail from that domain to one or more Sonic mailboxes.
