    You don't have an index.html file! That's why all the other files and pages are showing when you go to your root domain.

      Hi Aussie,

      Go to your cPanel.... go to File Manager, See if it named something different from index.html, if so, highlight it, then above the window of files, look for html editor, open up the file. see it that is what you created in site builder.

      fyi, site builder ain't easy..... :rolleyes:

      Hang in there...

    I'd forget about their sitebuilder and use Wordpress instead. Install it from Fantastico inside your cPanel with a few clicks, pick a theme (template) and you're good to go.

    I'd try out an open source CMS if you aren't too far in developing your website. I use Joomla and Wordpress. They are both very easy to set up. Just use simple scripts and click install! You can even try one out using a subdomain just to get a taste of what it's like.
