HOT Creating a Download Website using
Blogspot Host is totally free and there’s no way they could have given you the option to host your heavy files there. that will consume a whole lot of space from their end and the maintenance cost will every day increase, that’s why they can’t allow you to upload free. Maybe When Blogspot upgrade to premium plan they might consider adding the file hosting option.
how to create a download website on Blogger platform
Like you already know creating a Blogspot site is as easy as ABC. If you haven’t learned you can read my article here. You can also read how to buy a domain name in Nigeria here.
Now let assume you have created your Blogspot site and you have connected a paid domain name if at all you want to use a premium domain. But the question remains “How to get people to download from your site” Since your aim is making a download website.
There are two ways you can archive this: Using Authority links and Uploading your own files.
Using Authority Download Links:
Let’s assume I want to update my blogger site with trending music so that people can download from my blogger site, here’s what I will do using authority Download links.
Download the Url Shortener App. After that, google the music you want to upload on your site. (e.g Olamide- Poverty Die)

You can then select any top and reliable website where you would want to get your download link from. I just clicked on the circled website above. Scroll down to the download section of the website and click and hold on the download link then copy the download link to your clipboard.

When you visit the page and click on the download button it will start downloading on your device but since we don’t want to download it you will only need to copy the download link as explained above. If you copy the download link below is what you will get.

Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
Take the link to your URL shortener app and shorten the link to mask the URL source and also make it attractive. You will get this (that’s now your download link)
After publishing your post, When your readers click on download here, it will start downloading immediately without leaving your site and they won’t know the website where the music is uploaded because you have used a URL shortener to mask that.
This method is applicable to both music, Videos, Apps and every other thing Downloadable. Always be sure that the websites you’re getting your download links from are authority websites because if anything happens to those websites your download links will stop working.
Uploading your own files:
I don’t really think this idea is better of the first one but I need to show you just in case you want to explore something different.
This means you will have the files in your device before uploading. All you need to do is upload your files via Google Drive and you will get your direct download links.
Then you can use the link on your website as your file download link. You will have access to all your files but that will be more stressful. I will recommend you go with the first method.
Conclusion: Uploading Files on Blogger
You can also use the above methods in WordPress if you think your hosting plan is too small to handle the entire files you want to upload.
With the above method, you will be getting your download links easily without uploading while your site continue running on WordPress.
