List of good places to host your modpack file


Recommended Posts

Alright the purpose of this thread is to list as many sites as we can that can host a modpack zip.

There are some conditions for adding sites to the list.

They must:

1. Be Free

2. Give a Direct Link to the file that can be used to download directly (no secondary pages)

3. Have enough capacity to host a large zip modpack (around 250mb)

The list so far:

1. Dropbox (right click on download button and use the link to that button)(bandwidth limit)

2. www.ge.tt (technicpack.net times out or says the link is an invalid download location, good host for manual downloads though)

3. Ubuntu One (not working for me, gets stuck on connecting screen when uploading)

4.https://mega.co.nz (doesn't have direct links, good for hosting manual installation of pack)

5.omploader (not working for me, gets interrupted connection)

What about Sugarsync? https://www.sugarsync.com/

Its very similar to dropbox, and it allows 5GB or storage and I don't believe there is a bandwith limit. I've used Sugarsync before and its a great option. It might appear not to be free, but it has a 5Gb Option. For free 5Gb go to: https://www.sugarsync.com/free/

I'd suggest Mediafire, or dropbox, even though mediafire isn't direct its pretty fast, and dropbox I use too, its really.

Personally, from my experience the only GOOD way to host a file is via ftp. This requires a little knowledge but just go for a free webhost e.g. 000webhost and setup an ftp account, upload the files you need, go to the website address and just copy the links.

- However, I would recommend bitbucket. Just upload each new .zip file with a commit (changelog) and copy the links, you can make free private repository's with bitbucket and it much exceeds the github file limit.

I found a free webhost and it's pretty amazing! It's free unlimited bandwidth and all! I host my modpacks on there and I even made a website for it! Link: x10hosting.com

You need a bit of knowledge to use it. All you need to do is register, then go onto the Cpanel. Go onto File Manager. In directory selection choose Web Root. Then upload your zip there. Go to your main address for the website, right click the zip copy and paste it into your technic URL.

So mediafire stop working after day. I used dropbox too but "This account's public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled" so I need another hosting site. I searched some but all sites that I found are generating new links. How can I don't get my dropbox account banned?

try https://copy.com?r=VuWmje

its a bit slower than dropbox, but there is unlimited traffic.

Forgive my ignorance, but I've tried everything on the copy.com website to get the direct link and everytime i test it with the platform it errors.  Any advice?

 

I was able to get a direct download to a file after sharing the file like normal and getting a URL like this:

https://copy.com/ryu0zTQTXApw

I tacked on the actual file name like so

https://copy.com/ryu0zTQTXApw/LoTRCircles64x_Fancy.zip

and it allowed me to download the file directly without having to interact on a web page.

Was that .zip file you were using a Winrar .zip file? Just wondering cuz I tried what you did and it still had not worked when I launched it, and the only other thing I can think of that may be wrong is either the modpack or the link...

Anyone have any suggestions for a good file host(ideally not for manual downloads)? Currently I use Dropbox to host my modpack files, but if my modpack gets overwhelmingly popular and Dropbox suspends my account I'll ditch it. I've heard about linking Dropbox files through Google Downloads(yes, I use Chrome), but when I try to do this, and enter this into my modpack location, it tells me to enter a valid location for my custom .zip. I'm open to suggestions.

I'm just trying to test out my modpack, and I have been trying all of the hosting sites that I have found in various threads including this one (copy.com, dropbox, x10hosting) and nothing seems to work. I always get the same error, "Invalid technic platform delivery URL". I think dropbox is because i have a relatively new account and don't have a public folder, but I feel like copy.com and x10hosting should have worked properly. Any suggestions? Maybe it's a problem with my launcher? I'm doing this from Mac OS X. 

 

If not hosting, is there an easier way to just test a modpack with technic? I'm new to this whole thing and I don't really expect to end up with a great modpack that I would try to share around, just something for me and a few friends to play on. Thanks!

OK, so I've come up with a solution, because I couldn't get anything else to work.

So first off I use Mega.co.nz to upload, then get the link.

Go to generatorlinkpremium.com to convert it to direct download.

Then you go right click the download link and click "Copy link adress."

Now it's just up to paste it into Modpack Location.

Hope this really does help.
