Absolute path to your home directory

The full path to where your files are located on our servers.

All accounts are located at

/home/yourname/

where “yourname” is the domain name you signed up with, but without the TLD (i.e. without “.com”, “.net”, “.ca”, etc.).

For example, let’s say you signed up with the domain name “johndoe.com”. The absolute path to your home directory woud be

/home/johndoe/

.

Careful though, this is not your web root directory. Files in

/home/yourname/

are not accessible in a web browser. You must place your files in

/home/yourname/public_html/

to be accessible in a web browser.
