Hey there @tyoline,


The biggest issue you're facing right now is that you don't own or control the domain itself. It's for sale as a premium domain. In order to display your site, you'll need to be in control of the domain. 


Other than that, you jiust drop your files directly into public_html if it's an HTML site on the primary domain for the hosting.
