Notes on your home directory (or folder)

Most webhosts give you a directory, or folder (words used interchangeably), on their server for your website. Your website, however, is not inside of that folder. It is in a SUBFOLDER (usually called 'public_html or 'htdocs') inside that folder. In this case, you can make a folder in your user folder, NEXT TO your website folder . You can place files there that are not viewable from the web because they're outside of your website. This is the best place for your tracking folder. This program places it in your website because it does not know for sure what the setup is for each host. It is much more secure to have them outside of your website but the system will work either way.
