Upload a File Step 1.

Select the directory into which you would like to upload your file.  Most users will upload files to the public_html directory, this directory is Web Root and is mirrored in the www directory (you need only upload to one or the other).

Files located in the public_html directory are available to users and do not require a path to be returned.  For example, this is where a website default index or home page would be located – https://yourdomain.com will display index.html or equivalent (index.php, default.html, etc.).
