It is no longer supported, there have been no new versions for a number of years, and it's now looking decidedly dated - there are other, better FTP programs available.

I use this one click here because it's just about the best FTP program around - at least I think so.

That said, FTP as a protocol hasn't really changed that much over the years, and what you use is a matter of personal choice.

None of what I've said is going to help you manage a commercial website, however - that's something that can be fairly demanding in terms of the skills required. Do have any web-design experience at all, or is this your first venture?

I use Smart FTP, which is equally excellent. I have tried lots of FTP clients, like Filezilla, Core FTP and Coffee Cup Lite, and they are just not as nice to use as Smart FTP.

With regard to your present situation, I have to concur with the above comment - you are likely to find the initial learning curve to be a steep one if you have no prior knowledge of websites. Essentially, it seems that you are being asked to function as a webmaster for someone else's project, but without a CMS (content management system) to assist you.

smart ftp seems like it does have alot to offer. lol you are correct in saying i have a steep climb infront of me. they are asking alot of me but with the help from forums and a little time i figure i'll get the hang of it thanks for your help

Filezilla is free, very popular and I'm a big fan of it too.

I second the Forum Editor, I use IPSwitch and have had no issues with it.
