Web Hosting Getting Started Guide 94
By default, the page you ll see when you visit your web address is "index.html." If you don t
have an index.html file, our servers will look for a file called "index.htm." If your web site
does not contain either of these files, you will get a warning, and your web site visitors will
see an error if they try to visit your web address.
When you signed up for your plan, we created an index.html file for you. This file can be
replaced with a page you create using one of our site building tools, such as SiteBuilder, or
your own site building software.
If you ve already created a home page but are not seeing this page at your web address, you
may need to rename your page (for example, if you named your home page "home.html,"
you should change its name to "index.html"). You can rename your page using File Manager:
Open your File Manager by clicking the "File Manager" link on the Create & Update,
Manage, or Index tabs of your Web Hosting Control Panel.
Check the box next to the file you want to rename.
Click the "Rename" button.
Enter the new name for your file ("index.html").
Click the "Rename" button to save your change.
Remember that file names are case sensitive. Your home page needs to be named
"index.html"; "Index.html" or "INDEX.html," for example, will not be displayed when you visit
your web address.
