I just set up a website hosted on dreamhost, and it’s visible, but for some reason I can’t get it to display the correct file path.
The site is http://themostever.co , but I cant get it to display any other filepaths or directories that exist, say, http://themostever.co/music.html or http://themostever.co/aboutus.html like I feel it should. As you can see, it will just get a 404 error.
Strangely, when I search “the most ever company” on google, it finds my homepage, but it displays as the IP address: http://188.8.131.52/ . Oddly enough file paths like http://184.108.40.206/music.html and http://220.127.116.11/aboutus.html totally work.
I did research but still can’t figure it out. Does this have to do with IP and DNS resolution to domain names? (sorry, I’m new at this… the html code I wrote is all self-taught…) Do I need .htaccess? I know that has something to do with the appearance of directories… argh. I don’t feel like this should be all that hard. I also read something about A records.
Anyway, is it possible to fix this through the dreamhost control panel, and if so, how?
