Hi,

If you are using windows you can just do this:

Right click create new shortcut, enter path:

ftp://username:passworrd@www.yourdomain.com

Click Finish then double click and drag files onto the server.

A simple ftp solution.

You need to download some ftp software try cute ftp or terrapin ftp.

Make sure you've got your username and password for ftp (your host should of given it to you) then use the help files that come with the ftp software.

Hiya again

One more question, I need to ask - Do you need to pay for the FTP as I clicked on that link and it sounds as though you have to pay?

You can download a free trial with most of them. Which usually lasts for 30 days.

Hi thanks for that message.

So it means you have to pay for it. Do you know on average how much an FTP costs. Please

There are lots of FTP clients, all with different costs and conditions of use.

I use [smartftp.com...]

It's free for personal, non-commercial and education users. Otherwise, USD30 when the trial expires.

I use the old FTP Explorer which looks and works very similar to Windows Explorer.

Look for the archive file FTPX1010.ZIP or FTPX1010.EXE, else see [ftpx.com...] site.

Here's a rather new client that has become my favorite Windows FTP client:

Filezilla
