For an updated FTP tutorial, see here: http://zymic.com/knowledge-base/ftp.html
With each free web hosting account, you will have access to FTP. FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol" and is the best choice to use for managing your websites files.
To begin with you will need an FTP client, I use FlashFXP, however you may download Filezilla which is free (open-source) and easy to use:
Once downloaded, install and open FileZilla. Here is what it looks like:
In order to connect to FTP, you will need the following information (also included in your registration email):
And then hit "Quick Connect", if you have entered in your details correctly, you should be connected.
Now simply upload files from your hard-drive to FTP. To do so use the left panels to browse through your files, for example I want to upload test.txt which is located on my desktop. I right clicked it and selected "Upload"
The file will now be uploaded to your site, e.g. ftpupload.99k.org/test.txt
You may also create new folders, to do so simply right click in the right panel like so:
You can also change file permissions by right clicking and selecting "File Attributes".
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thats is how you can tell. Also if you can Upload files Your good to go
nice tut but sometime i get "530 Login authentication failed" :/
Either your not inputing a port, The server is down, Or your Computer/Internet is laggy
If it's your computer Shut down programs that use bandwidth and
Click Start -> run -> Type: Ipconfig /flushDNS
This will flush your DNS (kinda cleaning it up and makeing it faster. This is Safe concerting your Computer Runs this command When it reboots
If it's your internet..... well your SOL unless you upgrade Change the setting on both your router and/or computer. or switch ISP
