Root directory and move website's files with Fillezilla

Hi everyone.

 

I struggle a bit lately, I need your help, it's my first time also.

I just bought on godaddy the "Web hosting - Economy Linux Hosting with cPanel".

I successfully connect my host server with Filezila, but the problem is I don't know where to put my website's files.

Everywhere I searched, they say to put in "public_html" but I can't find this folder in the root directory. Instead, I have "home/[my.Cpanel.login]". I copy there but when I connect to my site it displays an error 404.

Here is the screenshot when I access to my hosting server:

 Thank you for you help !

If you haven't configured anything else on this account yet, I suggest contacting GoDaddy support and see if they can reset / re-deploy the account as somehow the folders which should be there like public_html and public_ftp got deleted

I would go into the file manager via cPanel and confirm the path is correct - personally I find this faster than using FTP
