How to remove the landing page?

Question: When I go to my website, I see a page that says, "Website Coming Soon!". How do I remove this?
Answer: Upload an index file (either index.htm index.html or index.php) and that file will load instead.

When you visit a website, it will always attempt to display an index page which can be named index.html, index.php, etc. Due to how our servers are configured, our default coming soon page will be displayed in the event that the typical file names do not exist. To resolve the issue, upload an index file such as a file named index.php, index.html, etc. to your account within the public_html directory.

I uploaded an index page, but still see the landing page!

If you have uploaded your website but still see the landing page, click the refresh button in your browser or clear your browser's cache as your browser may still have some old data stored within it.

If you have already uploaded your index page and are still seeing the "Coming Soon" page, you may have accidentally placed the files in the incorrect location. Fortunately, we have an excellent article which will assist you in placing the files into the correct location at the following:

If you want a different file name to still be the index page of your site, it can still be done by modifying your .htaccess file. The following article will walk you through this process.
