My Site Displays "Index Of"

This is caused by not having a home page file inside your public_html folder - named index.html.

Once you upload your homepage file onto your hositng space, the message will go away and your new home page will load. Our servers recognise a number of file names as home pages: the most common ones are index.html, index.htm and index.php

You can change the way the indexing behaves by using "Index Manager" inside your cpanel interface. Using this facility will allow you to hide the directory index completely, or display full file name details if no index page is present.
