How to Change the Default Documents in WebSitePanel

This article will give you a step by step guide on how to change the default document that is loaded by your website in WebsitePanel. If your website does not load the file that you want it to, the default file is probably not set properly. To change the default file, sign into your WebsitePanel and follow these steps:

1) Click Web Sites under Web

2) Select the domain or sub-domain whose default file you want to change. For this example, we will be changing the file for piwikdemo.arvixedemo.com

3) Enter the name of the file that you want to load first into the Default Documents box. The file names are listed in order of most importance. To set the file as most important, put it first on the list.

4) Click Update

This concludes how to change the default document that is loaded by your website in WebsitePanel

    • Hello,

      Are you using PersonalClass or PersonalClass ASP? If you are using PersonalClass hosting, you are on Linux/cPanel and will not see these options. If you have PersonalClass ASP, you are on Windows/WebSitePanel, which is where you will see this option. You need to hover your mouse over the “Web” icon, and then the “Web Sites” option will become available.

      Thank you,
      Arian Jahansouz
