Most web hosting providers offer FTP support, however you do need to check and make sure that the plan you chose includes FTP. The cheap web hosting packages sometimes only include web templates and do not allow you to build your own site and upload the files. If you have any question if FTP web hosting is provided and it is not clear on the web hosting company information page, then they probably do not offer FTP support. If that is the case, you should find another web hosting company. Even if you do not need FTP web hosting right now, perhaps in the future you will want to expand and enhance your site and will want the benefits of using FTP and you will spend more time and money changing web hosts rather than keeping the web host and changing plans.
