    I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up the main page of my website. the whole C Panel thing is new to me. my main page would be darkstorm.com and I need to know where to FTP my .html file to so that I can use it as a main page, and does it have to have a specific name?

    When you FTP to your account you will see a few folders, one called public_html. That's the one you want to upload your website to.

    The front page should be one of the following:
    index.html
    index.htm
    index.php

    There are a few other options, but they are most common.

    As long as you have a page with one of those names, it'll show automatically when someone goes to the domain.

    Also, file names are case sensative, so index.html and Index.html are not the same page.
