Hi jimmy,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. You are correct the "root" directory is your public_html folder. You can place all the files for your domain there. The "www" directory is a symlink to the public_html folder so it will display the exact contents of the public_html folder.

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thanks again!

Tim S
