When you log in, there will be (at least) three directories, as follows:
The “htdocs” directory is the one which your website files should go in to – for example, if your website is “www.example.com” and you have a file called “home.htm” which you place in “htdocs”, then it will be available as “www.example.com/home.htm”. “logs” contains the log files recording visits to your website; in the directory “private” you can place any files you wish to store in your account without making them available to anyone else. You cannot create any files or directories of your own in this top level.
