    How to get rid of the "index of/" page?

    Do I have to "park the domain"?
    When I enter my site, which is yet under construction, a "index of/" page with all the files shows up.

    What can I do?
    Thanks in advance.

    Make sure your home page is named index.html and is placed in your public_html folder. (main directory).

    The index of/ page is displaying because you have no index file listed within the /public_html/ folder. This will cause all your other files to show in a list format.

    To fix this just create a simple index.html saying something along the lines of
    "You've reached the new home of sitename. Please check back soon"
    and leave a contact e-mail for people who have questions.

    Or you can use an htt file that denies permission to the directory. Index.html would be easier though.
