I have a basic linux hosting on 1and1. I'm confused about the relationship
between web space and ftp space.

There seems to be two different ftp/web spaces:

s123456790.onlinehome.us (an alias created by 1and1)
mydomain.com (the domain I registered)

Only one of the above is mapped to the http://mydomain.com. It is affected
by the settings of the websitebuilder.

If someone could explain the whole picture of how these spaces are connected
and related to each other, that would be great.

I know, 1and1 has a tech support number. They are good at making things work
(e.g. they'd tell me to click on this, ftp to this address), but they don't
explain the why.
