The easiest is of course command line access on the hosting system.  FTP 
is essentially a file transfer protocol designed and inteded to move 
data between systems.

If what you're asking for is essentially how to do a cp (or copy on 
win??) from a remote machine you may want to look at "scp - secure copy 
(remote file copy program)"
