    What is my directory structure like?

    At the root (or top level) of your account exists these directories:

    • /backups
    • /domains
    • /mail
    • /public_html


    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.


    The /domains directory contains the files relating to your hosting account(s). Each domain hosted on your account has its own directory (/domains/ 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)


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


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