Hello.
In my hosting account I have main_domain.com and few other_domains.com folders.
When I'm installing Joomla by Fantastico to other domains its installing files to other_domain.com folder.
But when I installing Joomla to main_domain.com, whole files goes to public_html and its not comfortable.
Is there any method to install Jommla directly to public_html/main_domain.com folder ?

Is main_domain.com the main domain of your cPanel account that you see on the left column opposite "Main Domain" when you log into cPanel. Note that main domain is the primary domain of your cPanel account and its document root is actually the public_html folder. If you want to install Joomla in "public_html/main_domain.com", you need to ask your host to switch main_domain.com with some other and create main_domain.com as addon pointing to "public_html/main_domain.com".

So actually it's not healthy to use main domain's name of your hosting for the working site if you planning adding addon domains ?

Hello yell,

You can install Joomla in public_html if you don't already have content there for another program or haven't installed another Fantastico script there. Are you getting an error installing it into public_html location? If so, please provide the actual error message here.

I'm going to link to a discussion on what is likely happening that explains how to resolve the issue (if this is what error you are getting anyway):
