What is fp_player.exe?

Earlier today, I made an account for a hosting service. I wanted to check out this hosting service because a friend wanted to find a way to share his Minecraft world (it’s over 50mb) to the rest of us. We want to use that Minecraft world for a realm since he couldn’t always be online. While checking out this hosting service, I tried uploading some things myself. I finished uploading them, and tried to test how downloading them worked. However, while downloading, a pop up window opened, and downloaded this file called fp_player.exe. I immediately went to my downloads folder in Windows File Explorer and deleted the file. I think it finished downloading by then, though. I didn’t execute it before deleting, but I’m not sure if that changes anything. I’m not sure if it’s a virus or not, but some hosting services like these have a reputation for this, so this makes me scared. Does anyone know anything about this fp_player.exe and if not executing it kept me from getting some kind of virus on my computer?
