    I just got a domain name and host. Is there any way to access the host's server through Finder (using Connect to Server...) instead of having to use Fetch? If not, does anyone know of a decent free FTP program? I'd really prefer to be able to drag-and-drop instead of having to use the FTP CLI, but I will if that's the only free option.

    You can use the terminal window is OS X as an FTP client. You just need to learn a little unix. Very little. Trust me, even I can do it. Just ask a techie friend to show you, and remember it. The only problem is that it's not drag and drop. But it will give you a start on the inner workings of OS X, which is very interesting to know. There's a certain feeling you get when you can do things without the GUI.
