Thank you for your directory question. We use cPanel (an industry standard software), which structures the files this way.

You can change the document root for your domain.

Keep in ming that changing a primary domain doc root is NEVER RECOMMENDED by InMotion Hosting. cPanel restores packages based on default settings and miss document root changes. So if the account is moved, the accounts with the doc root change may break.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
