    Hi Friends,
    The root directory of your website is the content that loads when visitors access your domain name in a Web browser. The most obvious consequence of this is that you need to put your "index file" in your website's root directory for visitors to see your site at all.

    Website-related applications might also need to know your website's root directory.

    The document root is the folder where the website files for a domain name are stored. Since cPanel allows for multiple domain names (addon domains and subdomains), you need to have a unique folder for each domain.

    The document root is a directory (a folder) that is stored on your host's servers and that is designated for holding web pages. When someone else looks at your web site, this is the location they will be accessing.

    When talking about a web server, the web root is the topmost (or “highest”) directory on that web server where the files are served from.

    The root directory, or root folder, is the top-level directory of a file system. The directory structure can be visually represented as an upside-down tree, so the term "root" represents the top level.

    A domain's document root, also known as the home folder, is the main folder that contains all of the files for either a domain or a subdomain. Main Domain. The document root for your main domain name is your public_html folder.

    Web root directory is the top most directory from where the files are being served, when others try to access your website the content they look into are from the root directory,as this directory holds all the web related files in it.

When someone else looks at your web site, this is the location they will be accessing. In order for a website to be accessible to visitors, it must be published to the correct directory, the "document root."
