Hello Liz105,

Thanks for submitting a question about seeing uploaded files right away.

Sorry for the troubles with the website. Your files needed to be uploaded into the PUBLIC_HTML folder. I moved them there for you, since they were in the wrong place. However, I'm not sure I got everything, because when I run the URL, I'm getting a blank white screen. I did check your domain and it is pointed to us so everything appears where it's supposed to be, but there may be an issue with your website code. The INDEX .HTML is generally the first file needed by the webserver, but you can change the index file in .htaccess to whatever you need. Double-check your files now and please let us know if you require any further assistance.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
