    Brand new to this. Got a host and domain name and cPanel along with it. I can get on the web and find that I have a website. I can go into the links but basically all that is there is an index list of links. Is this a hosting issue or just a sign that I have no clue of what I am doing with cPanel?

    "Lost as a Goose" is a regional expression in the Southeastern United States.

    You will need to name the file that is your website's home page to index.html. This will show your homepage instead of those links :). It's a standard practice for web development to name your homepages index.html (or index.php, index.cgi etc. depending on which language you are using to code the website, most likely you are using HTML though).

    Ah yes, what you are seeing is called a "file index", such as:
    http://phirefast.com/f/

    Like David said, if there is no file named "index" with some exstension, the server's job is to simply list any other files in that folder.

    PS: Make sure to upload or create any files in your "public_html" folder. :)
