Web space help...

I have bought webspace from a hosting company. One 2 gig and one 99 gig. On the 99 gig one I am having problems assigning a domain name. Our host got back to me and said that there was no index page on the 99 gig space.
But on the 2 gig space there is an index page. The hosting company says either make an index page or point the domain to another folder other than the htdocs, what I want to know is how do you make an index page.
I'm a complete newbie to this side of things so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Colin :)


I may actually be insane.
Create a HTML document and call it "index.html". Then upload it to the root folder, which would appear to be "htdocs" in your case.

Save this as index.html with notepad or whatever. Very basic but it will be something.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
