godaddy cPanel issues

Greetings, New to cPanel, but i have used 000webhost before, where I only needed to upload my website files in the public_html folder and it would always index.html first. In cPanel however, it seems it does not work that way since I keep getting, "future home of something quite cool". I have 4 other default files in my public_html folder, cgi-bin, 404.shtml, home.html and layout-styles.css. If somebody would point me to the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What is your domain name and can you confirm the IP of your cPanel server?
