    Hi everyone,

    I have bought a domain from google sites. I have a hosting account with Godaddy. My site has been up for a few days now and works perfectly fine. When I post the link of my site, it comes up blank with a message from google "Hello World!". If I post the link of my site from a different page of my site It works. http://repositoryoh.com/repositoryoh.com/Home_Page.html (works) but if you type www.repositoryoh.com it gives that message. I use Iweb 09. I need your help!

    Thank you very much

    update ( this is the working link now) http://repositoryoh.com/repositoryoh.com/Index.html

    Judging by the url you posted, it looks like your files are not in the root directory of your web server. Also the main page of your website needs to be named "index.html", not "home_page.html", because the web server looks for the index.html page as a main page. If you don't have an index.html page the web server will just show a site directory of your website files.

    There's usually a directory folder titled "www" or "hhtpdoc". You put the files of your website in here and they should show up automatically when you browse to your website url.

    Iweb does not give me any of those details. All I have is the application and my account. I do not know where those folders are located
