    The usual cause of this sort of problem is that you have not uploaded quite the right thing to your website.

    Let's say, for example, after you use iWeb's "Publish to a Folder" command, all your website files are in a folder called "website".

    What you need to do in order for your website's main page to appear automatically when you enter your domain name is to upload everything inside the "website" folder, but not the "website" folder itself.

    You can do this easily by connecting to your server, then opening the "website" folder on your Mac, and dragging everything inside it to the Fetch window.

    You may want to delete what you have already put on the server and start over again so that you do not end up with two copies of the website on your server.

    If this does not help, let us know and we will try to provide further advice.
