+1 with Filezilla.  You can "bookmark" it in the program to save time.  
You could also look at using sshfs if your provider allows secure shell 
access.  This has the advantage of seeing your directories on the server 
as just another directory on the local system.
 From cli:
     mkdir MyServer
     sshfs username at mydomain.com:/path/to/working/directory 

you are mounting your domain server to the directory MyServer; which, 
btw, only needs to be created once.

I found the latter option handy as it not eating local resources. Hope 
this helps.
