Thanks for the question! The main issue you're discussing is the change of the main domain location. By default it's directly in the public_html folder. If you're going to change the location of the primary (main) domain, then you will need to move the files into that location after creating that folder. You will also need to submit a request to change the location of the document root. You will need to submit a verified support email to Verification is done by providing the last 4 digits of the credit card on the account, or the Account Management Panel (AMP) password.

I hope this helps to answer your question! Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
