I recently migrated my website to another webhost, was not satisfied and came back to my original host, but now there's a webpage that I did not create or authorize that seems to be accessible from my home page. My questions are: How can that happen? How can I get rid of it? I looked at my site using ftp and I cannot find the page anywhere on my current host site.
My website (which is "inactive" at the moment) is bigjets.com, but when I google it, I get the correct home page, but also another reference "http://www.bigjets.c...2_Contact.html" that contains references to various tickets etc.
Thanks for your help.

http://www.bigjets.c..._2_Contact.html is a 404 Error page when I go to it. Could be your host is using that as an error page because there is no 1_2_Contact.html page listed in your root directory.. The URL http://www.bigjets.com/ works fine.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I saw that 404 also, but I can't believe the host would do that. It makes it look like that page is associated with me. That would be sort of unethical, but I'll check that out with my host. Thanks again.

If you have a cPanel or a site management panel, you can set up your own error pages to use. Check it out first because the error pages are your host's default ones.

You're welcome. Post back if you have a problem customizing your own error pages.
