Change homepage on cpanel



I just got a new domaine and hosting for my website, I uplaoded my first pages (coming soon page).  I tried naming it index and default and home but it doesnt show when you go to instead i get the default cpanel page. For now I set it up as coming.html so when you visit  you can see my correct pages.

I found article online saying I should use .htaccess file, but i couldnt find it.


This is the first time something likethis happen, help please


Hi @aymanbgt, thanks for posting.

Did you place your files in a folder or directory? For the index/home file to work properly, it should not be in any folders. You will also want to keep in mind any links you might have on your site.

Either way, it looks like you were able to get this sorted out. When I visit your domain I see your coming soon page at this time.
