Use SSH instead of FTP. Look at this guide:

When you start a new server, there are a few steps that you should take every time to add some basic security and set a solid foundation. In this guide, we'll walk you through the basic steps necessary to hit the ground running with Ubuntu 14.04.

oh please, don’t no answer if you can specify your answer.

To transfer files from my Win7 desktop to the Ubuntu 18 droplet with the Putty pscp program I used the following command from the PuTTY directory:

// command
# pscp -i id_rsa.ppk c:\usr\PuTTY\README.txt root@167.71.###.###:/tmp
// reply
README.txt                | 1 kB |   1.5 kB/s | ETA: 00:00:00 | 100%

My stumbling point was the login for the transfer. I finally found that I needed to include my key file (-i id_rsa.ppk) to authenticate myself to the server.
