After an update, the home page doesn't change. The other pages do change and then if I click HOME from one of the other pages, the new Home page appears. What should my home page be named?

I'm sorry you're having trouble viewing your new home page after your update. Please make sure that your site's home page is named either index.htm, index.html or index.php. Alternatively, you can change the Directory Index to the correct file by making a change to your .htaccess file. Please also make sure that your site files are uploaded to public_html as that is your document root directory. More information on your document root and Directory Index can be found in our article What Directory should I Upload my Files to?

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