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

MediaFire doesn't provide direct links. You need a direct link, as in, if you were to click on that link, your browser would immediately start downloading it or prompting you what to do without having to click anything on the page first.

 

Right clicking the download file button and clicking "copy link" will give you the direct download link to the file. So you can use mediafire.

Don't use mediafire. The link you get by the method Tommsy64 provided will yield a direct link, but mediafire can and does change that link in order to prevent exactly what you are doing. Use Dropbox or copy.com or some other service which specifically supports direct links.

Oh, didn't know that. It worked for me. (But I updated the pack a lot, probably the servers never had the time to change the direct link)

Found a trick to convert a dropbox link to a direct link! just replace the www.dropbox.com with https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com MAKE SURE TO KEEP THAT HTTPS THERE.

 

conversion example:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rkhgsxzvpxnris/Teekit-edu-1.5.2-1.5.zip?dl=0

 

To...

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/0rkhgsxzvpxnris/Teekit-edu-1.5.2-1.5.zip?dl=0

 

It'es easy!

 I am having trouble using drop box, I click on the file, and it brings up the little download and share menu. I right click on the download button and select copy link location. I then paste it into my pack location bar on my modpack, and it gets the "You must provide a valid link to your custom zip." error.

Hey, figured out the fix to make dropbox work thanks to this forum:

http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/off-topic/computers-science-technology/195741-modpack-hosts-not-dropbox-or-google-drive

 

 

when you upload your modpack file to dropbox and attain the link by hitting share and (dont get put off by the email thing) click get link, it will copy the link to clipboard, sound familiar?

well heres the most important step

when you paste your link into the modpack file location box in technicpack, simply add this to the end of your link:

?dl=1

example:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/blahblah/Modpack.zip

becomes:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/blahblah/Modpack.zip?dl=1

amazing xD

also using something like webs.com to make free website, and upload the file like you would  a photo or something  you want on the site, then just use its direct link, works fine also.

I really need a new site to host ASAP. Was hosting on Dropbox but they cut me off because I was getting too much traffic. My modpack is getting hundreds of downloads a day and I can't have it being down for this long. Anyone have any suggestions? Even temporary hosting places that will work.

Copy.com is an awesome host, my old modpack Ultra Modded Survival used terabytes of bandwidth a day and they didn't even bat an eye.

I tried Copy but it wouldn't work, when downloading the modpack from the launcher it ended up being invalid.

 

For now I have just ended up buying Dropbox Pro.
