Adding New Domain: Web Directory Name question

In adding a new domain, I get to the part that wants me to add a web directory name. It’s preloaded with the website name including the .com – that’s just where all the stuff in my site is going to be stored, isn’t it? So, I can lop off the .com and just name it the domain name, really. Correct?


You sure can. You can make it just about anything you want, but I leave the TLD (.com) on mine so it’s plain as day that’s where my website is. I have a tendency to name my FTP user the same as my domain, so my directory looks like /home/example/
