Hi John,

I had the same idea with you just a few years back that the ftp only servers FTP protocol. But nowadays a FTP server provides same contents over a lot of protocols at the same time: FTP/FTPS/SFTP/HTTP/HTTPS. 

 Please check the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_FTP_server_software. There are so many choices but it is difficult to find one that is reliable, secure and at the same time easy to use.

sftp is part of SSH, not FTP.  https is HTTP not FTP.

ftps (FTP over SSL) is a non-standard mess and should be banned.

I use vsftp for a straight FTP server, and apache for a https server, 
openssh for a SSH server.  these are all standard CentOS components.
