[Common Issue] I’ve deployed my site but I still see "Page not found”

We attempt to serve only /index.html in case you try to load your site without a path, for example:

https://yourdomain.name/

The easiest way for you to see what files your build sent us is to download a copy of the deploy, available from the deploy’s logs page as per this screenshot:

When you check this, be aware that EACH deploy has this page and icon, so you can download a copy of ANY deploy. For debugging problems with your live site, make sure it says “Published Deploy” on the header as in the screenshot above, and to find the published deploy in your listing, see this example:

If you’re getting the Page Not Found error, I think you’ll see that you have no index.html at that path (in the root of your site, based on the above examples). If you think this isn’t problem, please comment below and we’ll try to help out!

Another common cause for this that I’ve noticed comes from not specifying in the deploy settings which folder to publish.

If your project has a build which generates the site to publish, be sure to tell Netlify where to find that directory.

In the example below, the “Publish directory” is dist
