404 The requested URL / was not found on this server

I'm totally new into hosting and web development.

I have my domain, which I bought from Google and I have hosted my server on GoDaddy. I have copied the files to public_html. The problem is that I getting 404 error as mentioned in the subject. I have tried all the troubleshooting mentioned in the help page and DNS things(I don't see most of the options mentioned in the help in my dashboard). But still not able to resolve the issue. Can you please help resolve this issue.
I feel it could really a simple issue and could stupid, please bear with me.


Thanks in advance

Re: 404 The requested URL / was not found on this server

It looks like the domain is using a 3rd-party for DNS.  If you wanted to keep it like that you'll need to find the IP address for your hosting account (if you need help finding it post the hosting product you're using), then update the primary A record at the other provider.


A record-

Host: @

Points to: [hosting IP address]


If you'd rather GoDaddy take over the DNS you would change the nameservers for the domain.  Note that the DNS holds all the settings for directing website visitors and email, so if you switch these would need to be updated if you use email or other services.
