I am transfering a Domain from a different hosting company to Dreamhost.
Currently I have gone through the transfer process, having the old hosting dns changed over to DH and approved both companies transfer requests and DH has emailed back that I am fully Hosted and Registered with them.
The Trouble comes now where / how to start my website, I know you obviously place your index.htm or .html file in the parent directory. But when I travel to my Domain it just goes to the “index of /” indexing and doesn’t see the .htm file. The only folders in my server when I log in to it with FTP is Maildir, logs, and I currently just made a folder of ‘mydomain.com’ and put an index in both the root and inside that domain folder but I am still unable to get the index to pick up.
what steps do i need to take to make a root directory for the domain and make it public for everyone to see?
