www vs. public_html

Well, it depends on your control panel

For Plesk is probably /httpdocs

For cPanel probably: /public_html


Now: www vs. public_html
cPanel, has /www as well because it happens that FrontPage users are used to /www and other users are familar to /public_html, anyway it seems like they don't use double diskspaces as far as I know, they just point to the same place.

Regards.

No, you don't have to.
/public_html will work fine.
You might come across /www if you enable FrontPage Extensions. But as I said before: they point to the same place.
