    Hello Everyone,
    I have a website dedicated to diabetes, and we have to offer a brochure for a banquet we're having to possible sponsors. Only, the host we have does not offer space for files with the package we purchased.

    Does anyone know of a service like Yahoo or something that offers free space where you can hold small files, where when a person clicks on a link from another site, it opens a download dialog box? I know that a lot of you have used a picture service to post pictures from certain locations. I'm just curious if there's such a service. Thanks a bunch.

    Putfile allows you to upload video, audio, Flash animations and images. Hopefully it will fit your needs.
  4. Are you sure they understand what your needs are? A web site is basically just a collection of files. I see no reason why you can't just put the file up there and put a link to it on the web site. I have doubts that any hosting setup would not allow you to have a downloadable file as part of the site.

    Do you have any info about the hosting company and plan? Maybe they thought you were talking about FTP which is definitely a feature that might not exist in lower-end hosting plans.

    Google Video and YouTube are two good options.

    What kind of files? I've never heard of a hosting service that didn't give you a few megabytes of space to host pictures for your website.

    Thanks everybody for the responses. Dave, you were right. While I was told by someone by the host that this was not available, I called them last night and stated that it is the most basic service and should be a part of any package. I learned at that point how to upload and link to files.

    The reason I had such a hard time up to this point was the fact that I was using their web creator, which works much different then uploading files.

    Thanks again.
