How do I use FileZilla FTP software to upload content to the web server?

I need to upload or download files to or from the web server – how do I do that using the free FTP client software, FileZilla?

Visit http://filezilla-project.org/
Click the Download FileZilla Client link or button
Click the recommended download link for your computer platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc)
Once the file has downloaded, execute it (windows or mac = double-click)
Once the install is completed, run the software.

In the FileZilla client software, select File, Site Manager
Click New Site, and fill in the correct information:
Host: <your domain name>
Protocol: FTP – File Transfer Protocol
Encryption: Use plain FTP
Logon Type: Normal
User: <your FTP user account>
Password: <your FTP password>
Click Connect

Your local computer file system is shown on the left, and the files contained in your web hosting account on the server are shown on the right.

All files you need to show on your web site need to be placed inside the /wwwroot folder on the web server.
You can drag and drop files to and from the web server directly to/from your desktop, other Windows Explorer windows, or using the file browser on the left within the FileZilla software client interface.
