Unless you are offering files via FTP to the anonymous public, I wouldn't do it, though - and even then, I would make sure it is set up for downloads only.
Many hosts actually won't permit FTP or especially Telnet, because they are quite insecure. You are much better-off using SFTP for uploading your files.
