You should see a folder called “shoneyboy.com” as well. I would contact support.


Go to the Web Panel https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=domain.manage& and click “Edit” for the service type = “Web” for your domain. There’s a text field that states what disk directory the webserver should use as your base WWW directory – this is the directory name you need to have/create in your FTP root directory.

Usually the WWW root directory is “yourdomain.com” and that’s exactly what macmanx writes too.
