    I have a website (awesom3.x10.mx) and I'm wondering: How do I change the front page?
    I tried putting an index.htm file in my main public_html directory, but that didn't do anything. :confused:

    You need to clear your browser's cache and history for your site (while not having the "coming soon" page open), then restart your browser before looking at your site. The auto-generated pages are very "sticky" in cache.

    Tried that, didn't work. My public_html directory files/folders are as follows:
    ads/
    data/
    error/
    services/
    index.htm
    ads.css
    xtnl.png


    Is there a problem that should make that not work?

    Your site displays. The problem is either in your browser or your ISP caching the old info.

    Oh, good to know. I'm going to see if switching browsers does anything. If it doesn't and resetting my DNS cache as per instructions doesn't work, it's my ISP...>:| which I can do nothing about. Thanks for the help, and at least I now know I don't need that index.htm on the end of my website link when I share it! :)

    Forget the DNS cache. It's usually your browser cache and history that is the culprit.
