Where to FTP upload your web site files and folders.

 All files and folders must be uploaded to the public_html folder in your hosting account, and should be uploaded via FTP software. 

When you log into your server through your FTP program, you will see several folders. The folder you should be concerned with is the "public_html" folder. This is the location you will upload all of your web site files to. You may also create other folders inside of the public_html folder.

EXAMPLES:

If I upload a file called "hello.html" to the public_html folder of this server, the URL (web address) would be https://www.saratogahosting.com/hello.html

If I create a folder called "hello" inside the public_html folder, and then upload a file called hello.html into it, the URL would be https://www.saratogahosting.com/hello/hello.html
 
You should NOT do any work above the public_html folder (with the exception of deleting files in the fantasticobackups folder, which may be taking up disk space un-necessarily) - everything above the public_html folder is consider the root of your hosting account, and the files / folders in the root are there for a specific reason.
