I'm trying to publish my site on the godaddy. I also spoke to their technical staff. Basically, I published my site to a local directory on my system (C:/test) and then copied all the resultant files from them on to my root folder on GoDaddy. However, I cannot reach my application!!! The technical guy mentioned that GoDaddy only understands index.html files as the startup. I am not sure how to resolve this. Please help!!

You did get a Windows Hosting account right? – Zoredache Dec 22 '11 at 12:07
Yes, I am with their 4GH hosting which supports MVC3 , 4.0 and iis 7. – CPat Dec 22 '11 at 12:17

Hint: If the account only supports index.html, it does not support any Upgrade.

Whoa, why the unnessary sarcarsm. My apologies I forgot to mention the hosting I've got. Doesn't warrant your comment though – CPat Dec 22 '11 at 12:24
While TomTom does (often) come across as sarcastic, he does have a point, we're not psychic. When asking questions on SF it's best to add as much info as possible, even if it doesn't seem that useful. – tombull89 Dec 22 '11 at 12:29
