How do I turn off the list of files that people see when they visit my website?

If you or your visitors are seeing a list of files and folders when they visit your site, this is because either

You do not have a default file such as index.html in that folder
You have not turned folder indexes off.
If you have not created a default display file, then, by default, the web server will display a list of files and folders in the current directory. Some people would prefer to turn this off. You can do this by either careting a default display file (such as index.html or index.php) or by manually turning off indexes in the control panel. You can do this by performing the following:

Log into your control panel at http://yourdomain.com/cpanel.
Click on the Index Manager link under the Site Management heading.
Click on the folder name for the directory whose setting you wish to change (choose '/' for the main directory)
Select No Indexes to turn indexing off.
Click on the Save button.
