Hello :)

Yes, you can upload files via FTP or through cPanel File Manager:

File Manager

However, you would need to create the website yourself. This may involve searching the Internet for information on how to include download links within a page.

Thank you.

You could just give them a link to the file to download in the page:

HTML Links

This site explains how to create links. You can simply include the path to the file on your site for the link. If the link is something downloadable (such as an mp3 or pdf), then the user's browser should detect that extension at the end of the url and try to download it for the proper program type to open.
