How to create URLs to share files from your web server Cpanel 

In my previous video, I showed how to transfer folders using Filezilla from my computer to my web server. Now I wish to create URLs for them so that I can share those files with others in my emails in my Blog posts.

We will go to my Hostgator Cpanel via File Manager & see the file I transfered “Client Info” – notice there is a gap between the 2 words which requires special handling compared with a single or run-together word.

In your document, you would write your domain name, add a forward slash then the file name if it was a single word such as “clientinfo”

but as “Client Info” is 2 words, it is necessary to add “%20” between the 2 words otherwise it won’t work. The URL is case sensitive also ….

http://www.imsocialmediatraffic.com/Client%20Info

If you don’t like seeing the %20 in the filename, all you have to do is rename the file or directory to something without spaces. Typically, this is done with dashes, underscores, or by simply not having the space in the name. Examples: Client-Info, Client_Info, ClientInfo. You would of course have to change any references such as links in your website to reflect this as well.

If I want to use the URL in my Blog, I paste the link into my post, highlight it, & create a link using the box to insert it.

How to verify website in Pinterest for Business

Web hosts with access to a Cpanel you can manage yourself

such as – Bluehost – Hostgator — goDaddy

Since this feature was just rolled out only top-level domains  (.com) are allowed to be verified. So if you have a ebay, amazon or etsy site you will not be able to verify your site at this time. You can also only verify one website per Pinterest profile.

When you’ve just opened your new Pinterest for Business account click the

Verify website tab

or Sign in to your Pinterest acccount

Go to settings and scroll down to your website

Click the “Verify” button

Once you click the button you will have a screen that appears allowing you to download the HTML code that needs to be uploaded to the root folder of your website via your hosting file manager or FTP. Do not close this page you will need it to verify your website once you uploaded the HTML to your websites server.

I logged in to my Hostgator cpanel

Scrolled down and clicked File Manager

Select the Web Root option (public_html/www) and make sure that you have checked the box to show hidden files. This will allow all files to show –

Once your file manager is open, select the folder with your domain name and click to open it.

once the selected file is open select upload, find the html file from pinterest and upload it

After you upload the Pinterest file you should see it appear in the file.

Now you will need to go back to the Pinterest website (the tab you left open earlier)

Click Verify- It will let you know if the code was found on your site.

Now check your Pinterest Profile!  There will be a red ticked icon showing.
