Page Not Found (Not Tech Savvy, Help Plz)

As mentioned, not the most code or html savvy. But I know I’m doing something wrong for a task so simple.

I uploaded a index html file into GitHub, went to Netlify accessed the repository, deployed the site. It went “LIVE”. I clicked the link and says page cant be found.

Now I’m like 90% sure it has something to do with the Publish DIrectory, Base Command, Base Directory etc. As they were left blank. Don’t even know what those mean.

But what should I do to make sure I get it right everytime I deploy? I’ve read some of the other threads here regarding my question, still not getting it tho.

Thanks in advance: (
