How to Change the Main Index Page on GoDaddy

Save

An "index" file is a Web-based file that is stored on a Web server. This file is typically the first port of call when a user types a website address in a Web browser. For example, if a user types "www.demandmedia.com" in a Web browser, this will locate the index file, which might be "www.demandmedia.com/index.aspx." Changing the index page in GoDaddy requires you to upload a new index file via its file manager.

Things You'll Need

  • Domain name
  • GoDaddy web hosting account
  • Visit the GoDaddy and log into the "Account Manager." Enter your "Login Name" and "Password" into the relevant text fields and click on the "Secure Login" button.

  • Click on the "Web Hosting" option in the "Products" section.

  • Click on the "Launch" option in your Web hosting account.

  • Click on the "File Manager" option, which is located in the Content section. This will automatically open the file manager in the root directory of the Web hosting account. Typically, this is the location in which your index file will be located.

  • Click on the "Upload" option in the menu bar and then the "Browse" option to select the index file to upload your index file. The file will be labelled "index" and will have one of the following file extensions: htm, html, php, asp or aspx; for example, the file might be "index.html." Finally, click on the "Upload" button to confirm the upload of this file.
