Where is my website's root directory in my Hosting account?

Your website’s root directory contains all the content that is displayed when visitors enter your domain name into their web browser. For example, your index file must be present within your website’s root directory so that visitors can access your site.
The root directory for your primary domain name’s website is /public_html.

To find the root directory for your addon domain or subdomain names, you’ll need to follow the instructions listed below.
