    Hi,

    It looks like you're using iWeb to create your website, is that correct?

    When you use the "Publish to a Folder" command in iWeb, you told iWeb to put its files in a folder named "new website."

    What you need to do in order for your website's mainpage to appear automatically, is to upload the everything inside the "new website" folder, but not the "new website" folder itself.

    (Before uploading again, it may be best to delete the files that are currently on the server and start over again.)

    Let us know if this helps or not.

    Thanks,
