Can I host more than one site in my space here?

I had a website up and running, although I had 2 copies of it (1 In public html the other in www folder)
I have just tried to upload another site I have created, I used my ftp client and put it in it's own folder within the public html folder.

How can I now foward to this site? Am I putting my sites in the right directories?

Thanks
Edit:
an now my original site doesn't work FFS :rant2:

public_html and www folder is the same, www is basically only a shortcut to public_html folder.

Any changes you do in one folder will show in the other.

If you want to have another site, you'd need to have a separate domain for it and add that as an addon domain.

Thanks for your reply but now I'm more confused lol

I already have domain names that I want to forward to the pages I have stored here, can't I just use it like storage?
Is there an idiots guide to uploading or web hosting anywhere? Iy's frustrating that my original site now doesn't work :(

Thanks, the news in chopin says it is fixed now though yet my site still doesn't work.
So was it that the server was down not that i'd uploaded 2sites to my space?

So I haven't messed it up, can I put both my websites within the same directory, they're not both called index.html

Thanks Zen R - Just added an extra domain, I had to read your link a couple of times but I go there in the end.
You can't beat the satisfaction of a little problem solving, as mentioned above this is my first site/sites so a noobs guide or howto basics would be really helpful ;)
