 What is an FTP client?

Solution

There are several ways to upload files to your website, but the most commonly used and most versatile is 'FTP' (File Transfer Protocol). In order to upload your files using FTP, you need to use what is known as an 'FTP client'.

The FTP client is the program you run on your computer that connects to our server and uploads or downloads files from your webspace.

Some popular FTP Clients include BulletProofFTPSmartFTPWS_FTP and CuteFTP. Each has different features, but all do basically the same job - that is transferring files to and from your website.  A Free FTP program is Filezilla, a quick Google search will allow you to download it.

Once your files are uploaded to the 'public_html' or 'www' directory of your website, you'll be able to view them online.
