If you have your domain (we’ll use
example.com as an example), and you’ve uploaded a file (we’ll use file.html as an example), then all you have to do is navigate your browser to example.com/file.html.
Maybe you will also benefit from this:
If you’ve just created your account, or just added a new domain name to an account, you may be surprised that you are unable to view your website when using the domain. Instead you may see:
An advertisements page, with ?z being added to the URL.
An error saying “This site can’t be reached”.
This is usually caused by a system called DNS Caching. This article explains how DNS Caching works, why your website isn’t up yet and what you can do to see your website right now.
When will I be able to…
In the control panel, you’ll find the sections called Addon Domains, Parked Domains and Subdomains. What do all those different domain types mean?
What is a subdomain?
In general, a subdomain is a domain which is a part of another domain name. So if you have the domain name example.com, then test.example.com would be a subdomain of example.com. And similarly, sub.test.example.com is a subdomain of both example.com and test.example.com.
In your control panel, the Subdomains section allows you …
Sometimes, your domain name may redirect to the website
suspendeddomain.org instead of showing your website. Contrary to what the domain implies, there are various reasons as to why your domain name may redirect to suspendeddomain.org.
In short, this happens if your browser is connecting to a website IP address, but there is no active website for your domain on the IP address.
This article explains many of the different ways in which this can happen.

I’m a Newby still not working
So far a joined InfinityFree and setup a domain of
I then uploaded some files
and if I go into the InfinityFree File Manager I can see them
(It has been over 72 hours so that DNS thing should not be a problem)
I go outside of Infinityfree to MS Edge and I type in various things including
And I see a site that says
Pay PerClick Adver

Any Ideas of wher I’m going wrong?
You may need to clear your cache.
Thank you for your response.
I tried that. I Flushed the Cache (windows 10) get message back that it ws successful
but it still does same thing.
WHere are you uploading the files?? Make sure to upload in the
Yes I uploaded to htdocs folder using Filezilla. In the InfinityFree filemanager I can see the files I uploaded, and can go up and down the directory path.
Thanks to all that have replied, but so far nothing seems to be working.
I see the parking page (What you referenced before). There was a similar issue before, so I don’t think you are alone in this.
Can you try removing the domain from the control panel, and adding it back again? This will force a refresh in the system.
Let me know if it works!
Thanks for Reply
I’m looking at control panel, but how do I remove a domain?
Can I just add a domain and give it a different name the CHH?
You should find it under “Subdomains”, “Addon Domains”, or “Parked Domains”. Just click the red “Delete” button once you find it. After you delete it, logout and close your browser, then re-open the control panel and add it back in using the “Subdomains” section.
Let me know if you need any help!
Thanks to Greenreader9 and the others who replied. I created a different domain and I uploaded,
Something interesting, It worked after I flushed the DSN cache.
However when I tried it the next day, it was back to where it was before.
I again flushed the cache and it worked.
The same thing happened the next day.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
I set up a web site, but when I tried to go there in explorer I got sent to a different site
Someone suggested that I clear my DSN cache which I did
At first this worked but the next day it was sending to the first site again
Clearing the cache worked again.
Now its the 4th day, it’s not working AND now clearing the cache doesn’t work anymore
Oh well I think I’ll try a different site.

I’m a bit lost on the current status of the issue.
Looking at your site
http://chh.great-site.net/, I see the “Let’s Make Something Awesome” page. That means your domain and account are working, but no index file is present in the htdocs folder.
I do see you have some pages uploaded to a subdirectory. If I open
http://chh.great-site.net/Horses/AplaceForHelpFiles/notepadd.html , I see a page that says “Computer Heroes”.
Note that this is different from the URL that your shared, because you wrote
horses instead of
Horses. But our servers, like almost all web hosting servers, are case sensitive, so the difference matters.
