Find my website's root directory

You can find your root directory for each domain name in your Web & Classic hosting account. When visitors enter your domain name in a Web browser, they will see the content in your root directory. You need to know your root directory to manually upload files via FTP and install applications, such as Joomla! or WordPress.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
  2. From the More menu, select Hosted Domains.
