Web servers have different syntax and conditions for paths and filenames. Especially if the local PC runs Windows it's not uncommon for websites to work locally but not remotely.

1. Check all paths in the HTML code. Links using local path syntax (C:\Users\...) will not work. The web server is a different computer running a different OS.
2. Check for case sensitivity. While Windows ignores case, it is extremely important on web servers running UNIX/LINUX. So index.html and Index.html are different files that can coexist.
3. If using CGI/Perl scripts, PHP or databases, be aware that the hoster must support/allow these. For Perl/CGI, you might need to use special paths on the server.
