index.html


I put an index.html file in /var/www/html. I am using Redhat Fedora Linux. My httpd and networks file are working. If I ping, I get the response from zonededit and Yahoo (my web URL host (www dot ronrajbang dot com)) . I must be doing something wrong, because I never could see my index.html file.
Thanks in advance for your help.

The dns is pointing at yahoo servers. If you've just updated the dns then it will take a while for it to propogate.

How do I make it to point to my webpage? Do I need to change things in DNS? I am using cable modem by Insightbb with DHCP.
Thank you for your help.

It is currently showing nothing. But I have an index.html located in /var/www/html. It does not show the contents of that index file.

I assumed that's what you were using ZoneEdit for? Was it for something else?

Someone suggested about this procedure of forwarding from Yahoo, from which I bought the domain name, to Zoneedit.

Have you signed up with ZoneEdit and configured your domain to point to your IP address?
