[thelist] restricted webspace or FTP hosting?

one of my clients needs to be able to exchange some large technical 
documents (up to 30Mb) with remote offices and customers. They are 
asking for a password controlled section on their website where users 
should be able to upload (through a script?) and download those 

Space is not a problem but I'm afraid that uploading such big files 
could interfere with server performance. Also, some users are not 
exactly tech-types and I'm not sure they would not stare at the 
monitor for hours (or call for help) if uploading stalls.

I wonder if a separate FTP server would not be a better solution. 
Suggestions? Can anybody recommend a safe and reliable FTP hosting 

Thanks in advance,
