How to create a download for your websites visitors?

Post by Pablo » Sat Jun 25, 2011 12:00 pm

Sometimes you want your website visitor to be able to download a file from your website, such as a .pdf, mp, .exe, .zip, etc….

This is very easy to do, please follow the below instructions...

1) When creating a file that is designed to be downloaded, it is extremely important that you keep the file name as short as possible and do not use any capital letters, spaces or punctuation marks.

2) Upload the file you want your visitor to be able to download into a folder on your website. You can upload via FTP or (if your webhost supports this) through the File Manager in the control panel of your website.

Let's look at the example of the domain name http://www.quickandeasywebbuilder.com . We want to provide Quick 'n Easy Web Builder as a download to our visitors...

a) We created a file zip file called webbuilder.zip
b) We uploaded webbuilder.zip to our website. Is this example to the root of the website.

Thats it!

The download link is http://www.quickandeasywebbuilder.com/webbuilder.zip , anybody who clicks this link will download the Quick 'n Easy Web Builder.

Let's Recap....

Your Domain Name + File = Downloadable link

a) every valid http link starts with http://

b) www.quickandeasywebbuilder.com is the domain name

c) webbuilder.zip is the file

d) we seperate the two with a slash /

e) and we get the downloadable link http://www.quickandeasywebbuilder.com/webbuilder.zip
