You can upload files to your web server using you web server control panel! Login in to your CP and go to File Manager.
However the best way to upload Files to Your Website is with FTP ( File Transfer Protocol ) client software! It's Easy & Secure! The commonly used FTP is called FileZilla it's free and easy to use.
Download and install FileZilla.
Open up FileZilla and go to File>Site Manager and click on New Site.
Fill in the Host, User, Password, change Logon Type to Normal! Ask your hosting provider for Host, User, Password!
Last thing go to Transfer>Transfer Type> and select Binary.

Go to Server and click Reconnect. Now you can transfer your files from your computer to your website.

If you have access to your server through ssh you can use scp to upload your files.

scp -i whereYourKeyIsLocated FileToUpload User@website.com:/where/you/wantTheFileToGo
If you want to download a file from your server to your desktop/dev machine.
scp -i whereYourKeyIsLocated User@website.com:/where/the/fileIsLocated /where/I/wantMyFileToGoOnMySystem
or to copy to the directory you are currently in
scp -i whereYourKeyIsLocated User@website.com:/where/the/fileIsLocated .

If at all possible shutdown FTP on your sever and use other methods. My personal opinion and of course not possible if you are using most hosting plans out there, especially shared hosting.
