putting a file to a web server

My understanding of this is:
IIS and other servers don't support the PUT feature. They support POST and
GET, but custom headers are typically written to tell the server what MIME
type etc.. FTP gets around this and is easier to use but less secure.
Currently, RR uses the PUT mode of sending files via http to servers.

I'm talking about some things I don't fully understand, but this is how it
was explained to me. I tried the put command and the server couldn't
recognize nor do anything with it.

I don't get it, if you don't have the write to access a directory, what
is the way to put files in it short of asking the administrator to do it
for you. One assumes that if you use a web hosting service you do have
rights to access any directories within your domain either via ftp or
http if the web server supports uploads.
