Looks like nothing is uploaded in your domain folder. That is where you need to upload your files.

/home/USER/DOMAINNAME.CA/index.html

should be http://DOMAIN.CA

When i navigate to http://www.dcsoffice.ca the URL is showing http://www.dcsoffice.ca/index.html/ (note the trailing /) without being able to see what you have on the server that tells me you have somehow created a directory named index.html You must remove that directory, and make index.html a file.

If your images folder is in the root directory, i.e. “http://yourdomain/images/” as you say, then all you need to do is remove the two dots your image tag:

change this

to this

The two dots tell the browser to look for images in the directory one level up from the current one. The slash alone tells the browser to go straight to the root directory.
