Question:

How do I let users download a large file from my website through a link on a web page?

Answer:

HTTP (the protocol for sending files over the web) is not reliable enough to transfer files over 1 MB in size, especially over a modem link.

We recommend using FTP (File Transfer Protocol). You can set this up by going to the FTP Manager in the WebsiteOS and enabling Anonymous FTP. Then place the file in the /anonftp directory that is created.

To access the file from a web page, the URL would be similar to:

ftp://www.domain.com/domain.com/yourfile.zip

You can find out more information about anonymous FTP in the WebsiteOS help.
