i right click the file and click on view , but i dont see the html file. i only see the code . y?

It is because it opens it in a text viewer. Just like if you right clicked the file on your local system and opened it with notepad you would get text. You can view the actual file in html form by navigating to it via your URL in a browser or right clicking it on your local machine and opening it with a browser.

Have you changed your DNS to point to justhost? You should have received a welcome email with that info.

Yes, you need to put justhost DNS servers on your domain. Contact their support if you do not know them.

but also try changing the home.html to index.html

when you brought the hosting, justhost would have said nameservers,?
