see a list of directories and files. This is where you need to put all your
website files. You will also see an index.html file. This

clicking on your files in the left panel and dragging them over to the right
panel. Also, be sure to use lowercase filenames and don't
forget to replace or remove the current index.html file with your own homepage.
If you don't do this, you may still see the default Welcome Page even after
you have uploaded your website.
