Inserting file for my webpages

I am creating a webpage.  That is easy enough, but what I have never done and need to do is insert a PDF file.  How do I create a link for a PDF file that I have created?  Do I have to load the PDF to a separate folder and what would be the link to allow people to download it?  Looking forward to your answers

If you just copy the file anywhere in your webspace and then give a direct link - I assume you don't want it to be found by people browsing the site
The link would then be www.mywebspace.co.uk/file.pdf - if it is in the root directory or  www.mywebspace.co.uk/folder//file.pdf if it is in another folder

Re: Inserting file for my webpages

Thanks, but it seems not to work.  I feel that I am going to have to set up an account where I can keep online files.  So that is the route I am taking.  When it works!  Keep plodding on

I will use my dropbox account.  Then add the link that way
