Why won't my website show up on Netlify despite paying for domain and successful deployments?

Hey guys,

I’ve deployed my website via BitBucket but when I navigate to my website, garensportal.com or garensportal.netlify.com, I get the:

“Page Not Found
Looks like you’ve followed a broken link or entered a URL that doesn’t exist on this site.”

The website with an old domain name is currently being hosted using Firebase and it’s live right now (https://garenv.com). I deleted anything Firebase related in my project and pushed to Master branch (so it can be deployed live) but it’s still showing the aforementioned error. I wanted to switch my domain name and service provider which’s why I chose Netlify.

What am I doing wrong?


Hi @garenv! Welcome to netlify community.

You are missing an index.html file from the root (very important) of your project. Check out this post for more: [Common Issue] I’ve deployed my site but I still see "Page not found”

Hey Laura :slightly_smiling_face:

I have another website that’s hosted on Netlify which doesn’t have an index.html file at the root. However, it has an index.html file in the public folder of the project. Something seems off with my domain I think, not sure.


Hi, @garenv. It looks like you resolved the issue.

I’m seeing a 200 response now (and not the 404 like before):

$ curl -sv https://garensportal.netlify.com/  2>&1 1>/dev/null  | egrep "^< "
