Now login to your hosting account and go to “Cpanel” If you are using a premium web hosting service then you can access your web hosting by visiting yourdomain.com:2082 or yourdomain.com/cpanel.
Go to “File Manager” after logged in and then you have to go “public_html” directory. After accessing “public_html” folder you will see some HTML and CSS files. Delete all these files from the public_html directory and upload your files.
Note: When you visit any website then the web server calls to index.html or index.htm or index.php or home.html or home.php or default.php file. So you have needed an index file. Because when visitors will access your website they will first visit the index.html page.
