    What is the difference between editing my blog online, by logging in and working thru the admin. Why do I need to download the actual program? I already bought my domain from and transferred the domain to word press, now im having a hard time downloading the program and don’t remember my password for the original place i bought my domain from.. I downloaded FTP and other programs but when I fill in my username url and password it cant find it. Ive been trying to work on this for the last 2 days about 12 hours. Its making me so stressed out and confused. Im usually good with computers, and can figure stuff out but not this.
    Can someone help explain to me why I need the program and what I should do to fix this? Thank you so much!!

    The blog I need help with is
