directory to place the web files?

Hi,

Here's a question from a totally non-tech-savvy Bravenet user. I'm trying to upload my site's files to Bravenet using my website creator software (Sandvox). It asks me the usual—server? (ftp23.bravehost.com) protocol? (SFTP) port? (22) username/password? Then it asks me for a folder to upload to, saying "The directory to place the web files. For example: public_html, www, /home/yourname". I'm stumped. I know it probably has something to do with my SFTP setting, but I can't figure out what combination/order of SFTP acct and domain name or whatever else needs to go in this box.

Bet it's totally simple and logical; I'm just not getting it. Could anybody give me a hint? I'd be so grateful!

Thanks!

Susan
