Web Account File Structure:

When creating your web site there are a few points to keep in mind. Your web account has a directory called public_html. All files to be used on your web pages should be placed in this directory. The first file you need to create is the index.html file which is the file you are currently viewing on your new account. The index.html is the default page displayed in any directory. When creating a new directory on your account make sure to create an index.html. If you remove the index.html all your files will be listed when the directory is accessed by a web browser.
