Hi Elizabeth,

I'm not 100% sure about how Godaddy or filezilla works but I can give you a quick explanation of how i have things setup, some of the steps you've probably already done but I'm going to list them incase you haven't.

  • I have a folder on my hosting provider that i call my "website" (or whatever the name of your website is)
  • Inside that folder I have my index.html file, about.html, contact.html, css FOLDER, img FOLDER etc.
  • when I buy a domain I go into the domain management page and point that domain to the "website" folder, thats how the domain finds all my website files.

I'm guessing that by the sounds of it your domain may not be pointed to the folder containing your index.html file etc.
