4.1.3 Defining Home Directories
Every Website and FTP site must have a home directory, which is the central location for your published
web pages. This directory contains a home page that welcomes Web browser users and contains links to
other pages in your site. A default home directory is created when you install IIS and when you create a
new Web site. You must specify a different home directory for each service if you set up a Website and an
FTP site on the same computer. The default home directory for the WWW service is \InetPub\Wwwroot.
The default home directory for the FTP service is \InetPub\Ftproot. You can choose a different directory as
your home directory.
