    Default create a direct link download

    Hi, I want to host a file on my own hosting that is a direct download, it's an .apk
    I have tried a few ways using cloud hosting but I cannot get it to work properly.
    I need the customer to click on the link and it just downloads the .apk to their device and install it. all above board and legit.
    can anyone help me as please
    many thanks in advance

    I use Onedrive for this sort of thing or if its "other" type of file then I use MediaFire

    In which case if you have a domain host just upload it to that this way it won’t create a default page.

    then link to the file, you can still use a tiny url if you choose.

    this should just download the file.

    Depending on what the file is I can host it for you if you want.

    think I tried that too?..does it have to be in the domain/flux75.apk or can itbe in a folder, say domain/IPTV/flux75.apk?
    think i remember still having problems..

    It can be in a folder.

    it may be something to do with the way an apk is downloaded to a device.
    what happened when you click the link does it ask you to open or download ?

    I can't get a path to the file or make it into a link.
    Whenever I create:

    knickelkit.com/iptv/Flux.apk

    it just goes to 404

    Send me the file mate by email
    zip it up and I’ll upload it to my host so you can try from there.
