Hi Carlos,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with your website. The server looks for and loads the index file for your domain, first looking for index.htm, then index.html, and finally index.php. The server is case sensitive, so Index.html is not the same as index.html. This is referred to as the Directory Index. You can rename your file to index.html and it will show as your home page.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
