Few friends of fine did ask me, I did login to my web hosting but what I saw in the server was few folders. "I am so confused. Where should I put my web sites or system?" Those are the common questions that been asked from the newbie. First of all, find the language of your web site. As an example php, perl or .Net. In this case I consider your web hosting could host all these languages.
For the most common, there are some folders in the web hosting : www, cgi and etc. Well, if you want to host your .net and php choose the www folder and if you want to host the perl files, choose the cgi folder. I hope this this short tutorial will help all of the newbies out there.
