What is the Root folder in cpanel file manager

You need to upload your website files in the htdocs folder.

If you open a file manager or connect to FTP, you’ll be presented with a folder which usually has a folder called htdocs, a file called DO_NOT_UPLOAD_FILES_HERE and a file called .htaccess. This is the base folder of your account which holds all the other files, also referred to as root folder.

oh man thats not good…what should i do now?

You could use Cloudflare by going on here, signing up to a free account, adding the domain and changing the nameservers to theirs to have free SSL and protection.

ok…but about the hosting…bcz i am hosting with infinity free that is free…my domain is from godaddy…if i changed my nameservers…will i lose my hosting with infinity free hosting?

No, you won’t lose the hosting with us. And, if the DNS records are not correct or complete, you need to point it to us with this guide, taken up from this KB article, but edited by me to match the English grammatical standards and the new Cloudflare dashboard’s DNS page:

First, delete all DNS records currently in the Cloudflare’s “DNS” page. Then, you’ll want to add the following DNS records:

  • CNAME record with name @ and the target being your account’s main domain. How to find your main domain.
  • CNAME record with name www and target @ .
  • MX record with name @ and target (to receive emails).
  • An additional CNAME record for every subdomain. So if you have a subdomain named “blog”, you need to add a CNAME record with name blog and target @ .

ok…so all i have to do is to sign up with cloudfare…change my namerservers to their nameservers…and ssl will be installed…and i will not lose my infinity hosting…right?

Yes, but if the DNS records are not complete or correct, you need to follow the guide I posted above.

ok…thanks dear
