    Make sure your homepage is named index.html or index.php. The server is usually setup to expect this name (some servers are setup differently). The image you are providing doesn't seem to show any files uploaded to the server, like samwich is saying. You'll need to upload, via a FTP program, your web site. Your web host should have given you information about the server name to connect to with a FTP program.

    you should probably check out the stickies area and look up some tutorials to help you get started.

    That img tag is valid for web forum posts.. but not an html document.

    Try <IMG SRC=".." /> and while you're at it you might want to browse this short article.

    it looks like you're already off and running but I just wanted to clarify.

    your index.***(it can be .html, .htm, .php, etc) is your home page.

    when people go to your site, they are technically going to www.whateveryoursite.com/index.html

    this is your public folder. being that you're new to building sites, just get a simple index.html file up and link your other pages from this page.

    good luck!
