ftp?is a protocol used to upload files to servers. - File Transfer ProtocolFtp applications divided into 2;1. Ftp server : apps that used to enable files upload at server.2. Ftp client : apps that made uploading easier by clients.examples;Xisto has an FTP SERVER running at its server so that you can upload your web pages here.Your Pc needs an FTP CLIENT to use the ftp service provided at Xisto.FTP accounts;An authentication account (with username and password) to enable access of an FTP SERVER to ONLY LEGITIMATE users.its look like to me that you need to open an anonymous accounts to enable anybody to access for ftp.search the web using the keyword "what is ftp". i suggest using yahoo or altavista.

I'm almost very certain that the lad means FTP server, since he wants to share his stuff with others.

I noticed in my root directory here on Xisto a public_ftp folder as opposed to the public_html folder. I believe that an FTP server already exists for members here, and all you need to do is drop files into the folder. There's probably a config control panel in the CPANEL site, but I haven't checked that out. Anyway, if that's the case, it's a very simple thing to do here. Just another reason why Xisto is my godsend, as opposed to so many other pay or do-it-yourself services.

yes, public_ftp is used for anynomus access. the control is somewhere in the cpanel. a really useful feature indeed.
