GoDaddy Website

I have build a website using GoDaddy.com, www.blueskybindery.com. Now I am trying to use the optimization tools and have come upon something that I have to put in my "root directory" and I have no idea what or where that is? Does anyone have experience with GoDaddy? Or can you tell me how I find or make the root directory? I have to say that I have no real idea what I am doing, just started my own business and want some sort of web presence that I can point people too. My website is pretty simple for right now, and I don't think I have it in me to get too complicated so if this root directory thing is beyond me just let me know.

    The root directory should be the VERY top directory you can get to. If you clicked My Computer and opened up C:/, you'd be in the root of the C drive.

    just a quick tip that's unrelated... one of the first things you need to do.. before anything else, is find the code for your main page, and replace the part at the top which says <title>page 1</title> with blue sky bindery.... it's got the section heads on the other pages, but your main page still says page 1.

    the root directory is the root of the site. 'www.blueskybindery.com' is the root. 'www.blueskybindery.com/images' is a sub directory.

    if there is some virtual path trickery going on, its where all your pages are. the actual folders that contain "Home_Page.html" etc.

    Okay, I figured out the <title>page 1</title> problem and fixed that. I have not figured out the root directory thing but there I think it might be more than I am ready for. If anyone else sees anything wrong please let me know....thanks!
