By default, no, there isn’t any FTP options for Spaces.

But, if you really want it, you can mount it using s3fs and then use it as file system. If you really, really want FTP, you can set up it to work with s3fs.

However, this not advised/recommended as Spaces (or any other S3-like mechanism) are not meant to be used with FTP or similar protocols.
