Thank you for your questions about uploading files via FTP in Freeway Express. I would like to start by clearing up any confusion between your temporary URL and your domain name. When a domain is registered it can take up to 24 hours for it to be fully functional. During that time period, you can use your temporary URL instead of your domain name. As it's been more than 24 hours since your domain was registered, there is no need to use your temporary URL anymore.
If I understand your question correctly, you would like to place the files somewhere other than your document root so you can test the site. You've actually already done this. Under the public_html directory is a subfolder you created (named tonycastro). You can simply put the name of this subfolder at the end of your site's URL in your browser (http://seeworthybirds.com/tonycastro/).
Once you are ready to publish your site files and go live with your website, adjust the Directory field in your Freeway Express publishing settings to public_html.
Freeway Express Publishing SettingsTo recap your publishing settings:
Server: Your domain name or server name.
