    New to this - am stuck after uploading file to public_html

    Hi - I am a total newbie to building a website - I am trying to create a very basic website - I am using FileZilla to do this. Regrettably their instructions are no longer reflected in their screens
    I have uploaded a file to the public_html of my site & have absolutely no idea what to do from here to complete my site & be able to access it from a Google search (using full www. name in search)
    I hope someone can advise me where I might find a step by step guide for a simpleton like me
    Thanks

    Do you have an index.html or index.php file? If not then you need one as all sites have to have an index file (generally the home page). If the file you have uploaded is something else and you just want to check it is there then you will need to browse to the actual file (assuming here the file is called about.html for demonstration purposes):
