Where do I upload my files?

All files and folders should go to the public_html directory.

The public_html folder can be accessed either by FTP or via 'File Manager' under 'Site Management' in cPanel. To access your account via FTP, connect to www.yourdomain.com or to esc##.bookandhost.net (replace esc## with the server your account is on). Be sure to create an index file for your first page, this can be index.htm, index.html, index.php, etc. Please note our Linux servers are case sensitive so index.htm and Index.htm are two separate files. Index.htm will not be recognized as the default first page. It must be index.htm (.html, .php, etc.) in lowercase.
