Hello AnnBrantingham,

The page you are seeing is named default.htm and only displays if there is no index.htm, index.html, or index.php file (standard starting pages for websites). As soon as you upload one of those into your account root, the message will no longer display.

However, should you choose to still delete it, you can do so via your cPanel File Manager.

Best Regards,
Scott M

Login to your site using either an FTP client such as FileZilla or using the File Manager found on your cPanel.
Open the public_html folder. Locate and delete the index.html file in that folder. If you don't know how to go about this, visit our Video Tutorials and click on File Transfer to learn how to use your FTP client to upload and delete files. If you still encounter problem contact iruomajoseph@gmail.com
