Well, for lack of a better word, I used 'alternative', but this is simply an easier way to use FTP and whatever local text editor you prefer.
One way to edit ones 'web pages' is to use a text editor, then connect to your account with a FTP client and upload the 'edited' files.
The 'alternative' I am proposing here basically does the exact same thing, but uses this program - NetDrive to make the FTP connection, and map that connection to a local drive letter on your computer. This description of the program says it in better words than I can:
So, to summarize, this makes the whole process easier, or less time consuming, and I hope it helps someone.NetDrive connects storage servers with WEBDAV and FTP protocol. It allows Windows users to manage files and folders on a storage server as though they were located on your PC’s local drive
