Some answers.

1. Yes, if you know a username and password to have read and write access or have enabled the anonymous logon for read access.
2. I'd start with asking your ISP if it's included in your current subscription. After all, ftp is the standard way to fill your home page.

FTP Servers

In reply to: FTP servers

I used "Filezilla FTP" to completely build this website: and some others as well. This is
a fairly complex html site so many files have been transferred
via Filezilla, with relative ease.

Filezilla has been very consistent
in performance, is free and is web-based, so you can access
it from anywhere (keep in mind that your editor files must
be available to upload, but also that you can download). Its got a site manager that makes loggin easy.

You can download it for free here on CNET. There is a good
help file for beginners also. Hope this helps.

Sorry for my bad English.

First I have to thank you all for your replies. As I see I must have a computer connected to the Internet all day everyday. That is something I can't do. So I am looking for (I suppose) a web FTP hosting In which I would want to upload personal files closed to the public
