You can configure your program to upload via the FTP service.

Example configuration for yourwebsite.50webs.com

FTP Host: yourwebsite.50webs.com
Home Path: /yourwebsite.50webs.com/
User: 50webs username
Pass: 50webs password

Example configuration for yourwebsite.com

FTP Host: yourwebsite.com
Home Path: /yourwebsite.com/
User: 50webs username
Pass: 50webs password

Thank you so much for replying as I am extremely new to web publishing.
when you say "yourwebsite", I don't add the .com to it do I?

In this example (based on your profile) the FTP host would be floorsbygoss.com

There are many free program available. Below just a few you could try..

NVU - http://www.nvudev.com

Visual Web Developer - http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/

Or if you can afford to splash out some money I would recommend trying..

Dreamweaver - http://www.adobe.com/products/dreamweaver/
