    I want to host a file on my website so that my friends can download it. How can I do this? Any link to external website?
    I'm a total n00b here so detailed description would be very appreciated.

    You can upload a file to your FTP space (hosting folder) 0& then create a link to it:
    <a href=".../images/file.jpg">name_of_the_link</a>
    where:
    /..../images/...jpg is the path to your file (including actual name of a file & its extension)
    Name of the link - the title of your link ("Click here to download a file" for instance)
