    Your public_html and www folders point to the same place, your root web directory. Anything placed in these folders will be viewable on the internet. This is of course, assuming your domain/nameservers etc are setup correctly.

    go to public html and your domain should automatically show there. If it doesnt contact your hosting company.

    Once you see the domain you wish the files to be transferred to then just drag and drop. If you want a file to be your home page name it 'index' it should automatically show as your homepage.

    However if you name the file as 'sim4' (for talking sake) then your domain will be www.example.com/sim4

    any questions just reply, hope you get it sorted.
