Ownership of this home directory is managed via their account username and password. The home directory contains other directories of which the "HTTPDOCS" directory is the most important. The HTTPDOCS directory is where you place files all HTML files, images, sounds, and files you want people to be able to access through the internet.
NOTE: Upload all web files to the httpdocs directory
