    Hi, I just started learning how to use C-Panel. I created a new account. Although my main domain which is mydomain.com points to home/username which isn't a live(public_html) folder? I then created an FTP account that goes to mydomain.com. How do I direct the main domain mydomain.com to the ftp folder. That way I can view a live website with that domain name?

    I've removed your live links, there is no need to give your actual domain name when asking a question here.

    When you create an account, your public_html directory is the same as mydomain.com. It's located here:
    /home/username/public_html/

    You already have an FTP account available as the account owner. You'd log in to it using mydomain.com for the hostname. You'll use the cpanel username as the login name and the cPanel username's password.

    No addon FTP account is required.
