Step 1: Set up a file host
First thing to do is to set up an environment where you can host your files and offer them to others. I use Dropbox (up to 2GB of free hosted storage). If you want to sign-up through me click here (we’ll both get extra space if you click through that link). If that idea offends you, you can also go to Dropbox here.
Step 3: Download a ZIP file
You want to create one file to download and you want to make the download time as short as possible by creating a file that is as small as possible. Make sure you have the possibility to zip your folder.
Step 4: Create a public Dropbox folder
Step 5: Add a download image and link it to your file
Create an image that you want to use for your download (you could also use some text). Go to the HTML and add the following code just before the image code:
<a href=”your dropbox link here“><img src=”your image is here“></a>
And the image and link below is what you will get. You can click on it to see the download sample for this page.
