Wouldn't that be just any VPS provider? You rent a VPS (or a single instance on a cloud) and you install an FTP server on it.

However, infinityfree has an upload size limit of 10MB

awardspace is 14mb.

There is a 10 MB file size limit on all ProFreeHost servers. It is vital to remember that this is a file size restriction rather than an upload restriction.

If you are going to publish stuff for unauthenticated download it would be less work and more efficient to use HTTP, HTTPS, or BitTorrent for distribution. If that is the case, then just about any hosting provider will do the job and it is just a matter of pricing for a low-end plan.

Or are you talking about having the ability for random people to upload stuff to your VPS?
