www vs public html folder
I have always uploaded and installed wordpress to public html folder but in the build a website track Nick recommends uploading html and css files to the www folder. What is the real difference between the two folders and does it matter where you put the files?
Also, if you want to have more than one website in a folder such as www how would you separate them?

Many small business website owners manage their websites themselves, and if you've spent any time on a web server, even with any of the easy-to-use administration utilities like cPanel, you'll know that much of the functionality isn't exactly self explanatory.
A client I'm working with currently asked what the difference was between the /www/ and the /public_html/ folders on her web server. The answer to that is nothing at all.
