    Hi!
    I have a domain registered,say :abc.net
    I have uploaded the web files in the FTP and connected to server.
    I tried calling this way: abc.net/directory/test.php.

    But unable to display the page in browser . What shall I do? How do I make the web files accessible over the net?

    1) Are you able to open abc.net

    2) Have you properly set nameserver of your domain name in domain control panel. Nameserver is provided by hosting provider like:
    ns1.host.com
    ns2.host.com

    3) DNS propagation can take few hours. If you have correctly followed above step, try accessing your website using some proxy like: kproxy.com

    Re: How to open webfiles in browser?

    Make sure you upload files in:
    /public_html directory

    For example upload test.html in public_html folder. Then open:
    yourdomain.com/test.html


    Your website main page / homepage will be index.html / index.php
    Create a file index.html and upload in public_html folder.

    Now, try to open yourdomain.com

    Hope that helps you :)
