A free FTP program that is available and good to use is FileZilla.  Download the software from the following project page -

 Once installed if you launch FileZilla you will have two window panes.  The left side is your computer, the right side is the remote computer you are connecting to.

The filesystem on your website server should now be displayed.  Remember to put all files for your website in the "www" folder.
