Future home of something quite cool
chabutna said 2 years, 7 months ago:
I tried uploading my home page to my domain, but when I try to access the website, a page appears that says “future home of something quite cool”. The html file is located in the html directory on the FTP file manager, and I even tried renaming it to index.html because I’ve read that I need an index file.
What else do I need to do?

If you renamed the home page to index.html, it should have loaded properly. I’d make sure that the index page was uploaded to the root directory for your domain and that you did not accidentally create a directory called /html/ to upload it to. That is a common error that some people do. You can test this by going to http://(your domain)/html/index.html and see if your site loads then. If so, then you need to move your site files to the same directory that the welcome.html file is in. The welcome.html file is the one for the default Coming Soon page.
If you would like us to look at your site, please respond with the domain.

Yes, thanks to this it finally worked. all I did was take all of my html files out of my sites file and moved them to were the welcome.html was placed.
If anyone is having trouble launching their site from the “Future home of something quite cool” do this just to be sure.

Can you have a look at my website and tell me what is happening?
I didn’t upload anything and I tried messing around but I still have the welcome page up. My page is (www.jcsand.com) Thanks!

This usually means that your domain is not pointed to your web hosting plan correctly. You will need to locate the correct IP address for your hosting plan and update it for your domain’s A record. The following help articles will guide you through these changes:
Keep in mind that any DNS change can take up to 48 hours to fully propagate.
