Because with ftp, one is used for control and the other data transfer. Just think of it as a single port because that's how it behaves.

Just FYI, if you had googled for "ftp port number" and done a little reading, you could have easily discovered this answer all on your own and saved us some time and effort.

Your premise is incorrect. FTP also has only one standard port.

I'm sorry, but your question doen't make sense. Both HTTP and FTP use one standard port. But either can be bound to other ports if you wish. The same is true of most (but not all) Internet protocols.
