Smart guy!. when i say fast , i'm talking in relative terms to other ftp softwares. I'm sure you know that some some softwares are faster than others, achieving this by opening multiple channels wit the 'destination'. e.g download accelerator, You do same with your woiindows operating system as well.

connecting with cuteFTP is usually faster than using explorer (all things beign equal)

I've used it too -- very efficient although I'm not too cool with inputting my ftp passwords on a web page.

softwares dont determine speed, your server and network does, though you may be able to control the speed

CuteFTP is very good. Very fast connection and transfer rate. Friendly GUI interface. Allows for chmods, editing of files within hostserver.

I also use www.web2ftp.com when i'm not with my PC.

Windows FTP is so slow and uninteractive. I use SmartFTP -- it's superfast and has a friendly user interface.

you really dont need ftp client to upload/download files to your website, you can connect directly from windows explorer using either of the following methods

ftp://username:password@yourdomain.com

or

ftp://yourdomain.com a box should popup and ask for you password

I used a free host once -- http://azuka.superihost.com. My site got hacked shortly after I used net2ftp. I don't believe in coincidences so I switched to paid hosting and now connect with SmartFTP only from my computer.
