Where do I upload my web site?

Where do I upload my website You can begin uploading your files at:

YOUR-DOMAIN.com or YOUR-IP

User name and password are the same as the CPanel.
To upload your files with FTP you will need an FTP client.
Upon connecting, you will see a list of the following directories:

/public_html - This is where your site files will go ! IMPORTANT !

/tmp - This directory holds your access log files

/mail - Mail area for your domain (no need to touch this!)

/www – same as /public_html

The public_html is where your web page files has to be placed

Your html files, and or the files you want to make accessible to the World Wide Web must be uploaded to your account. When you first FTP into your account, you'll be taken to your "Home" directory. Don't confuse this with your "web directory." The home directory is "not" accessible to the World Wide Web; it's a private directory where critical system files reside.

DO NOT delete ANY files that have been created by the system, otherwise your web site may disappear into cyber oblivion!
