    As a new Cpanel user, I would like to know where I should store my index.html page and my directories. In my Public_html folder, a file was created called "syoung". I didn't make this file it just appeared. Question is, do I put my index page in that folder or just directly under Public_html. There is also a cgi bin folder and a htaccess folder.

    Hey Susan,

    You have to put your web content inside your public_html folder.
    If your site uses cgi/perl scripts they should be placed inside the cgi-bin folder.
