Directories on your account
Directory structure of your account
WARNING: Our system contains many
automated scripts and services that create directories and files
within your account. DO NOT DELETE or change any of the directories
or files that are located on the server that you did not create
yourself. If you are ever in doubt about a file or directory, please,
contact us to help you identify
Your web site is made up of a group of files and directories, much like your Documents folder on your home computer. Only in this case, everyone in the world can see some of your files. To give you an idea of how the directories and files work, we'll look at a view of the file manager.
Here is a list of the initial directories that you’ll find.
Where it says domain this indicates your own domain name.
- access-logs - This contains your access logs
- mail - This contains all POP mail accounts.
This will also contain any mailing lists that you create.
- public_ftp - This contains the directories
for files that you wish to make publicly available via FTP
- public_html - This is the folder where you
put your website files
- www - This is a shortcut to the public_html
folder. You can treat these as the exact same folder. This one
is just easier to type.
- domain-secure - This too is a shortcut to
domain-www except that when the server is requested to use secured
pages, it uses this directory automatically.
- tmp - This is a special directory
that contains data for your account traffic. Do not delete this
