So I'm pretty new to this, and came here through teamtreehouse.com's How To Build A Website course. This is my first time owning my own domain or using an FTP service.
I have a domain from Namecheap.com and it should be connected to my account in Dreamhost.
But I hit a few snags. First, I could not get my FTP clients to connect me. I tried Cyberduck and Filezilla with my domain name and the SFTP user account Dreamhost gave me. While doing this, I'm trying to follow instructions from Treehouse.com.
I talked with Dreamhost customer service and managed to get FileZilla to connect by changing the host from my domain, to the dreamhost server my domain is hosted on. This got FileZilla working, but not Cyberduck. I don't know if this has anything to do with my current issue however.
Currently when I try to visit my domain, instead of going to index.html, it just goes to the Namecheap placeholder. I try kuhl.me/index.html, and the browser refuses to connect to it (ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE.)
All my web page files are uploaded under my domain file in FileZilla. The link below goes to a screenshot of FileZilla, with index.html highlighted
