I used File Zilla to upload my site folder under the public_html folder in hostgator.
I pointed my domain name to the host gator servers.
I even tried creating a new site folder, and connecting through the ftp.mydomain.com way in filezilla…
I waited 24 hours. It doesn’t seem to be working!
When I enter my domain name, it just shows a hostgator page.
What do I do!?
I added a domain in host gator and it appears as a folder when i connect to the host using filezilla.
Should i put my site folder under the public html or the mydomain.com folder that apears under the html.
Also there is a .DS Store file that appears. Should I get rid of this? And yes i DO have an index.html file but I want to put more sites later on in the public.html, so should i put theindex.html file directly under the public.html?
Do you have an index file in the ROOT of your site (directly in the public_html folder and not in a another folder)?
Have you tried going to a specific page that you know is there (say you have a file homepage.html in the public_html folder, go to www.yoursite.com/homepage.html)?
Make sure your files are directly in the public_html folder and not in a folder inside the public_html folder. If you have the files in a folder inside the public_html folder, you’ll need to add that folder name to the end of your url. For example: You have a folder called ‘mysite’ and you threw it into public_html. You’ll need to go to www.mysite.com/mysite/ to see your site.
