I can only see the "Coming Soon" page (default.htm) to show for my website.

This is probably a stupid question, but, here goes...
I'm new to InMotion after several years with another hosting company, and am still getting used to how to run things here.
I've installed WordPress on my domain ( and migrated all the content from my old to the new install. From there I've been playing with various theme stuff and what not. So, obviously, my /wp-admin page shows up... But, that's it.
Every single other thing I try to load, from the front page to individual files, give me the "Website Coming Soon! Stay Tuned" placeholder page.
I am a new enough user that I do not have an Index.htm file to remove, so I'm at a loss for what I need to do to get that frakking "Stay Tuned" page to go away and have my site show up.
Anybody smarter than me in the room? I figure there must be...

I should also add: I've tried opening the site, and various pages etc. from three different machines (plus one tablet and one phone). I've flushed the DNS on the various computers I've tried it with, and still no dice. So, it's not that either.

Hello BFEAdmin,

Sorry to hear about the problem you're having. I took a look at your files and discovered that you did not have the default Wordpress index file in there. The default.htm is designed to be replaced by any index file. I went ahead and added a default index.php file into your files and now your website comes up. You might need to clear your browser cache in order to see the page correctly. Try simply refreshing your browser page first, though.

If you have any further questions or need further assistance, please let us know!
