Ubuntu 20.04 best way to make file server?

I have recently read somewhere that you can simply host a file server with ”’python3 -m http.server”’. I plan on using this on a PC running Ubuntu and access using my laptop so I don’t have to have all my files on my laptop. Is this the best way to do it? I have seen many others using Apache, Samba and such. I just want to know which would be easiest to just access a few files.
