"When you connect to your site you should then be looking at the root of your website. You will see a folder called "index.html". That's the problem! You want everything that's *inside* the "index.html" folder to be *outside* it.
And THEN.... you need to have one document in the root of everything called "index.html". Note that this is a single HTML document... not a folder! This is the page that people see when they first visit your website."
