Hello Roel,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with your site. While looking into this, I found that you had an index.html file in your document root that contains code to point visitors to your home.html file. If your home page is something other than index.html, index.htm, or index.php you can <a href="">point the site to the correct file name using your .htaccess file</a>. I have added the following line to your .htaccess file which now points your site to your home.html file:

DirectoryIndex home.html

I then tested your site and it's working correctly now. If you have any trouble viewing your site, please <a href="">clear your browser cache</a> and try visiting your site again.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
