    Hello :)

    You should upload files via FTP or via the "File Manager" option in cPanel to the "public_html" directory. First, you need to create an account within Web Host Manager via:

    "WHM >> Account Functions >> Create a New Account"

    I highly suggest reading both the cPanel and WHM user guides, which are available at:

    cPanel Docs

    These guides will be very helpful in helping you to understand how to use each option.

    Thank you.
