This information has been emailed to you by the host provider. Run FileZilla and insert the login information then click Quick connect.


When you get connected to the server you’ll see a window with two columns like the image below.


The left column: is called the Local Site and shows your computer


The right column: is called the Remote Site and shows the folders on the server. All the files that are shown on your website are located inside the public_html folder on the server.
