    For ftp, you can either download an ftp client, (there are lots, such as smartftp, cuteftp) google for "free ftp client" or something.

    Or, if you don't want to download, you can use ftp through your browser.

    to do this, you would type

    ftp://the.server.name/

    into the address bar. It will try to connect, but fail. Then you will need to go to the "file" menu in the browser and choose login as to login with the username and password that you have been given for your site.

    Then you can upload files by copying them into your browser window, or vice-versa.
