FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the most common method for uploading files to a web server. There are many pieces of FTP software available and Windows Explorer (part of Windows) can be used as an FTP client.

Incoming mail (POP3): mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP): mail.yourdomain.com
Username: your email address for that account
Password: your password for that account
