    When you create an account, it creats these folders for the account.

    mail
    public_ftp
    public_html
    www

    Which one should i use?
    What is each folder for?

    John,
    Thanks Alot!

    mail ~~~~~~> The mail folder for the domain
    public_ftp ~~> For public FTP use // keep empty, unless you will allow public FTP access to your domain
    public_html ~~> The domain site files to be viewed over the internet
    www ~~~~~> shortcut to public_html

    Hope That Helps.
