Hi,
In cPanel 11 I can host addon domain in a folder outside public_html. Is that good idea in terms of accessibility, speed and would everything else function normally. Also would that impact on SEO of the website hosted outside public_html. My hosting provider advised me not to move outside public_html folder in order for the website to be accessible. Can you please advise.
Thanks in advance

Hello :)

There is no change in functionality or accessibility/speed when configuring the document root outside of the public_html directory. It should make no difference with SEO.

Thank you.
