    Maybe you accidentally uploaded an .htaccess file that closed off your account's root folder. Do you still have FTP access?

    try deleting the haccess file. if it still doesn't work you would need to get in touch with your website hosting company about it.

    DirectoryIndex Index.html
    in .htaccess file or replace existing DirectoryIndex directive if it is already there.

    That should make this work. If not try renaming your Index.html file to index.html (lowercase). There is mod_speling installed on that server so your links will not get broken.

    put a center tag right after your opening body tag and then close it before closing your body tag

    Unfortunately, absolute positioning was used in massive doses in this site. Not really sure if it can be auto-centered.

    Probably you are correct here. I think that the site needs to be done with relative positioning then wrapping all of the code with a wrapper that is coded with text-align:center;

    Absolute positioning takes the divs out of the flow of the page and makes it difficult to do things like increase text size without wrecking the layout.

    Your page fails HTML validation with 30 errors, you may need to fix these first.

    Have a look at your page in Firefox and increase the text size a few times and you'll see what happens with absolute positioning.

    I used to use it but realised that I had to go to fluid design for the sites to be seen in all situations without breaking up, etc.

    By the way, you also need to look at your spelling/grammar!

    You are using "your" instead of "you're" in a couple of places.
