Ok, when I log into my account at the hosting service I see a directory structure like this... /contains...mydomain.netmyotherdomain.net mydomain.netcontains...datalogswwwroot When I create the database will that create another folder in "/" or in "mydomain.net" or in "data" ? Thanks.

It should be at the root domain level. I believe that databases (or at least mySQL) are then usually accessed via a port, like 8889.

I guess what I had not given much thought to until now was the public/private nature of the folders. Even though I can hide the contents of the public folders it is still possible for anyone to download any file if they know or can guess the filename. So to control file downloads they would have to be stored in the private folders or inside the database.
