Excuse my ignorance, but what and where is the root directory?

The root directory is under your main domain, yourwebiste.com. To get to it, you'll need to use the FTP login info in your site details under Websites > Site Manager > Details (of the site you want).

FTP is a way to login to the back end of your site to see how all your files are organized.

May I ask why you are asking for that? I don't think you'll need that access. If it's some code that you need to paste for Google Analytics or something else, you may be able to do it through a plugin instead.

I just don't want you logging into your site's directory unless you really need to... don't want you accidentally deleting or modifying something you shouldn't.

Thank you for your quick reply. Alibaba has asked me to link their affiliate code in the root directory.

Usually you can get a plug-in that you can apply site wide codes to. My theme does this so I don’t have a plug-in that will do that. You can search it in your Plugin, Add New or search for one on Wordpress.org.

Thank you Littlemama once again. It's very confusing.
