    So I bought a domain name from GoDaddy and then purchased their Website Builder v7. Then I realized that the website builder wouldn't do the things I needed. So I cancelled that and purchased the regular hosting and such. For now, I just want my domain name--let's just call it domain.com--to take the content of domain.com/home.html.

    Right now, when I go to "domain.com", it shows the content from the last time I published on the WebsiteBuilder 7.

    So any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    domain.com is, public_html/ on your account. So, whatever you have in public_html directory, move it out of there to a backup directory somewhere outside of public_html/ to somewhere like /username/oldfiles/ for example. Or kill the files within public_html/ if you no longer need any of it.

    When you do, and then open domain.com, you shouldn't see the old site, you should see nothing. Add your home.html page back to public_html afterward to see what you expect at, domain.com

    :D Thanks. I don't know why it kept bringing up the old content.

    You're certainly welcome.

    Browser cache most likely. :)
