Godaddy hosting help with index.html file

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by amdfanboy, Jun 6, 2011.

    I have a website, and hosting through godaddy, and am trying to verify my website for flash games with another site, but I need an index.html file, and don't know much about files or anything.
    SEMrush
    Somebody showed me this text:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <title>Your Flash Website</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div align="center" class="websiteFlash" style="padding:10px">
    <object classid="clsid:CLASS-ID-GOES-HERE"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"
    width="800" height="700">
    <param name="movie" value="websiteFlash.swf?button=1">
    <param name="quality" value="high">
    <param name="menu" value="false">
    <!--[if !IE]> <-->
    <object data="websiteFlash.swf?button=1"
    width="800" height="700" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
    <param name="quality" value="high">
    <param name="menu" value="false">
    <param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
    FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
    </object>
    <!--> <![endif]-->
    </object>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>


    I don't know if thats what I need, but I did try it, and it failed cause I probably didn't fill it out right. Please help.

    Not clear. Do you mean they want you to put backlinks under your site for verification? Then you should put that end of body tag.

    Are they asking you to put a verification code in your index.html file?
    If so you just need to post it in the <head> area of html of you index.html, I know Google Analytics makes you do this.
    To do this you will need to log in to your Go Daddy acct. and edit the index.html file in the file manager. I have used Go Daddy and it is one of the most confusing webhost sites to navigate IMO. Call customer service if you need help, they are very helpful and it normally only takes a few mins to get them on the line.

    I don't have an index.html file. The file verification is a different file I had to upload to my site, but I need the index.html to make my site live. I don't know what I need in the index.html file though.
