First you will need to upload the video file to your hosting. You can do that using the File Manager, or a third-party SFTP program such as FileZilla. We recommend using a SFTP program for files bigger than 3MB.

Then you can create a link to your movie file, or embed it directly into your webpage using HTML code.

<a href="http://mydomain.com/myVideoFile.mp4">Visit My Video!</a>
