Well, There are so many ways you can get the fiels and database from the hosting compnay to your computer. You can use any ftp program to do that too. As you are not familiar with, the simplest way to use the browser.
Steps.
1.Type in your browser address bar: ftp://yourdomainname.com and hit enter.
2.You will have to enter user name and password.
3. You will see a directory something like, www and doble click on that and see there may more folders. Just drag and drop those into your desktop. Always its not the case, you will see the www directory but something similar to that.
Thats it.
Note:
Make sure that you have ftp account and your ftp services is already started.
Problem:
If your database is SQL then you need to use SQL EM to back up but you can ftp the files.
GOOD LUCK.

You can download a free ftp program from this site. They will all do the job as for ftp programs, I found wsftp is probally one of the easiest to use.

12345,
If your Db is SQL server, then you need a little experice with SQL server. But I have writen down the necessary steps to do that. If you need a ny help, buzz me at [email protected] There are many ways to do this but I have listed done only one.
1.Download the microsoft SQL Server Evaulation Version at www.microsoft.com/download
2. Install on your PC.
3.Once you are done with installation go
Start-->Programs-->Mircosoft SQL server -->Enterprise manger
4.Right Click on the SQL Server group -->New SQL SErver Registration
5. Follow the instructions. In this case you the hosting company SQL server ip or domain name, database name, user name and password.
These thing you can find at shop$config.asp file
6. Once you are done with that you will see your database at left pane of the window.
7 Again right click on your db and select Backup. Follow the instruction.
You will be done.
If you have any problem, dont hessitate to buzz me at [email protected]
GOOD LUCK.
SJ.
