Can't see static site without index.html

Linode Staff

I uploaded a static site exported by Hugo in this bucket:

When I go to the URL, I can't see anything.

But I can see the site if I go to

What am I doing wrong?

Your bucket's endpoint should also include website- in the URL before your region, similar to this:

The reason you can see your site using the bucket URL+index.html is because you're actually telling your browser to view your index.html file in the bucket itself, rather than the web endpoint (the one that contains the website- part).
