You need a ftp to upload it.

The ftp address they ask for would be your domain name (www.yoursite.com)

The webserver location for the script will be the location on your site (www.yoursite.com/shoppingcart)

To install the cart there should be instructions, but most likly you will have to use a database, so you will need to login to cpanel and create one. For exact instructiosn check the script you downloaded and the site of whoever made it.
