I accidentally deleted the public_html or www folder.

If you delete the www folder, your site should still load properly.

If you delete the public_html folder, you will need to restore a backup from before.

If you don't need a restore, but want the public_html folder fixed, please contact us via phone, live chat, or email support@hostgator.com with the details.

What is the difference between the Public_HTML folder and the www folder?

Short answer: There is no difference, they are the same folder.

Long answer: The public_html is your primary domain's document root. The www folder is a symlink to public_html.
