How to Use FileZilla FTP Client to Connect to a Web Server
Launch the FTP client software on your local computer.
At this point, you're now yet connected to any server.
Choose File→Site Manager to open the Site Manager.
The Site Manager opens to the default General tab.
Click the New Site button and name your site.
You can give the new site a name to help you identify it. This site name can be anything you want it to be because it’s not part of the connection data that you add in the next steps.
Enter the FTP server in the Host text field.
The host name is the same as the FTP server information provided to you when you set up the FTP account on your web server.
Enter the FTP port in the Port text field.
In most hosting environments, FTP uses port 21, and this never changes. Just be sure to double-check your port number and enter it in the Port text field.
Choose FTP→File Transfer Protocol from the Server Type drop-down list and then choose Normal in the Logon Type drop-down list.
The Logon Type option in the Site Manager Dialogue box displays Normal.
Type your username in the User text field and then type your password in the Password text field.
This is the username and password given to you in the FTP settings.
Click the Connect button.
Your computer connects to your web server. The directory of folders and files from your local computer displays on the left of the FileZilla FTP client window, and the directory of folders and files on your web server is displayed on the right.
