Site Details

After accessing your WCP Control Panel, we recommend reviewing the default "Site Settings," found by navigating to the WCP URL and then accessing Site Details under the Website Settings section:

WCP (login and select domain) >> Website Settings (Section) >> Site Details

  • Primary and Secondary DNS - This is the Primary and Secondary Nameserver URLs for the domain.
  • Mail Server - This is the server name that the site will route mail to.
  • Site IP - This is the IP assigned to the site (This information will update if the site is assign a static IP.)
  • Web Root Path - This is the file path to the publishing folder.
  • FTP Root Path - This is the file path to the FTP root folder for the default FTP account.
  • Server Name - This is the name of the server that the site is hosted from.
  • IIS Version - This is the Version of IIS webserver environment located on the server.

How to Find the Publishing Folder

You can locate this by clicking on the Site Details button in your WCP.

  • The publishing folder is also referred to as the "webroot", "home path", or "public directory".
  • This folder is where the site files are placed to be visible to the web.
  • Our Windows/WCP plans use the "wwwroot" directory as the publishing folder.

How to Find the Default FTP Root Path

You can locate the FTP root path for the default FTP account in the Site Details.

  • Additional FTP accounts that are created will not have the file path reflected in Site Details, but can be located in FTP accounts.
