Please don't post links to your website, I've removed it.

You've uploaded your sites files to a directory inside your public_html directory of the same name, similar to this example:
example.com/example/

You need to move the files from that /example/ directory, into the public_html directory so they can be viewed at example.com properly.

Any files from your old site left in public_html directory should be removed.

Your Hosting Provider should have been able to help you with this. ;)
