"I'm assuming you want to Setup an FTP server to host files?

I'd first make sure your ISP doesn't block incoming port 21.

If you can receive incoming connections on port 21, then setup vsftpd."

I would recommend using SFTP instead due to the lack of security of FTP. If you wish to set up SFTP, just install openssh-server and it is done.
