    All your files should be uploaded to public_html and there should be one file called index.html or .htm or .php in that direcorty. Make sure you retain the same structure with sub folders under that.

    Yes..Colinsp is correct.

    piscespassion,
    Normally web hosters email complete hosting details, isn't it? Didn't you get that? All the information are there..Or else you can contact your host and ask any related questions.
