Directory Structure

At the root of your account exists these directories:

 

/backups

/domains

/mail

/public_html

 

/backups 

 

The /backups directory contains all the backups created through the control panel.  You will not have a /backups directory until you create a backup in the control panel.

 

/domains

 

The /domains directory contains the files relating to your hosting account(s).  Each domain hosted on your account has its own directory (/domains/yourdomain.com).  Within this directory is:

 

/logs             (monthly logs are stored here -- the directory is created one month after your account is created)

/private_html  (all files accessed through SSL -- https://)

/public_html  (files for your general website)

/public_ftp     (files for your FTP site)

/stats            (files created by Webalizer for the purpose of statistics -- do not alter/delete this directory)

 

/mail

 

The mail directory includes files created by the server's mail system.  Do not modify, delete, or add anything to this directory.

 

/public_html

 

The /public_html directory at the root of your account is actually a link to /domains/yourdomain.com/public_html.  If you have more than one domain hosted on your account, this link will forward you to the public_html directory of the last domain created on your account.
