    It sounds to me like you've linked to an image or something on that page, incorrectly, probably after uploading via the cPanel File Manager. You should check the HTML of the page to find the URL that's pointing to somewhere other than the public_html of your account.

    Your host can better help with this sort of thing.

    would you happen to know how i can find the right url of the images i have already uploaded to cpanel? because right now the only addresses i can find and link to look like this

    ip.address.removed/viewer/home%2fhorn%2fimages/biobutton

    and this is probably my problem.
    is there a certain folder i am supposed to be uploading my images to that i will be using on my site?

    Yes that's the URL you'll want to change.

    IPaddress.removed/viewer/home%2fhorn%2fimages/biobutton

    Note the path in bold.

    In your File Manager navigate to the public_html directory. Anything IN this directory can be accessed on the Web. So, you might either place the image in there and change the path, or, for organizing, move the directory images into the public_html and place your images there.

    So then the path might be something like:

    images/biobutton.jpg

    Once you do that, and check the page the image should work. If you right click it and choose properties then, you would see the full path of:

    yourdomain.com/images/biobutton.jpg

    yourdomain.com is the public_html directory in the File Manager.

    Again, this is more of a question for your host. He can assist you with where files belong.

    Solution

    In that case I like to recommend you please rename or remove the .htaccess files present under the public_html and clear the cache from your local machine and try to access your web site and if you are still having any problem then post exact URL in this thread so that we can help you in better way to resolve your issue or you can also contact your hosting provider to resolve your issue.
