    How do I know if I have uploaded my site files to Hostgator correctly?


    This is a very basic site with art files and index.html file and a default file
    Should they all be in the www directory file with cgi bin under that?

    well navigate to that file with your browser.

    if its on public_html folder then the url is the one you registered with

    HostGator uses cPanel and in case of cPanel your website needs to be inside the public_html folder. Just transfer index.html and the whole structure to public_html and it will work. Dont worry about cgibin as you are not using cgi files.

    Hi thanks

    My website shows but it is not displaying properly

    I went to W3 validation and 19 errors show
    THis background sort of one for instance

    How do I correct this please?
    Do I remove the < P > element?

    Line 197, Column 4: document type does not allow element "p" here; missing one of "object", "applet", "map", "iframe", "button", "ins", "del" start-tag <p><img src="art/header-800.png"></p>

    The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you've placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are both allowed there and can contain the element mentioned. This might mean that you need a containing element, or possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous element.
    One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").

    Usually the background is done on or off page CSS but there is no <p> anywhere.

    If I understood your question correctly.

    Also FYI, some wordpress themes give the W3 validation fits.

    How do I know where to upload site files when I add an addon domain in Hostgator so I do not mess up my main site domain and files?

    THanks
