something is wrong because i have deleted old website files from public_html and loaded new ones but when i go to front end i see only the old site still.
Have you cleared your browser's cache? Can you also confirm that the site is in fact pointed to your server/that directory?

You'd need to know where the document root for the domain is, if there are any redirects you'd find them in the .htaccess, CNAME records can redirect a domain to another location, you can set some CMS software to use a specific directory as the document root but the standard cPanel document root is /home/$user/public_html

Thanks!
