Change domain name

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Apologies but I am in desperate need to fix something by the end of the week. The developer of a website I have been project managing has gone AWOL. For the purpose of this post lets say the domain is www.joebloggs.com. The website is uploaded to our hosting provider, however you can’t access the main page by typing in www.joebloggs.com, you have to type in www.joebloggs.com/index.html - not very practical. How can I resolve this please? I know a little bit of code and can access the file manager to edit/create any files I may need. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Do you have access to htaccess? If so you can set index.html as default;

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

It will try for index.html first then index.php if it's not available.
