I have a FTP server but I would like to use the resume option to restart an upload in case the connection is lost.
Can FTP do this?
If not is there a file transfer protocol that allows to do such a thing..?

Your FTP client should support resume transfer. I prefer FileZilla.
You'll need both a server and a client that supports
REST (restart) and
SIZE which are defined in RFC-3659. The server should respond to a
FEAT command with
Ideally the client and server would support
MDTM which reports the modification time of a file on the server so the client can decide if the file has been modified since it started transferring.
