Temporary websites solve a lot of problems.
Many services offer one-page temporary websites.
Tiiny.host supports both single and multipage temporary websites for free.
This is a game-changer.
It’s a perfect way to share your website prototypes and demos for free.
It’s also a great resource to get feedback on any ongoing project.
You can host single files, turning them into instant temporary websites. File-types supported include PDFs, text documents, images, presentations—any file that can be hosted online.
And it’s simple to do.
Once you experience how handy it is to have a temporary website, you’ll use them often.
As I take you through this process, remember that you needn’t develop an entire website to temporarily share a file or site. The process is much simpler than that.
Sometimes, you just need to share your progress on a project with others quickly. It may be an entire website or a section. Or maybe a notification of some sort. You may need to post your prototype, portfolio, résumé, or demo.
A temporary website may be the best way to share your message. Whatever you need to have others look at, it’s easily accomplished.
Let’s see how it all works.

How to prepare your temporary website for uploading
RECOMMENDED ARTICLE: A Guide to Static Websites
Prepare your temporary website
All your website files must be enclosed in one folder.
The home page HTML file must have the name “index.html” or the automated hosting process won’t work. “index.html” is the web standard for naming your home page HTML file.
The file structure of your uploaded zip file should look like this:
— FOLDER: assets
— — images, logos, etc.
Those of you familiar with web hosting will understand this structure and can modify it as you see fit.
If you’re confused about any of this, contact tiiny.host/help and ask our awesome customer service people for assistance. We can be reached by chat or email.
When your website folder is ready
- Compress the WEBSITE folder as a zip file.
- Upload it to Tiiny.host.
That’s all it takes.

Sharing your new temporary website
After your website is uploaded and live, you can share it with a link, a QR code, or both.
You can always access the link and QR code from your Tiiny.host dashboard.
Share the link and QR code on your social media platforms, in email, and wherever you wish to spread the news about your new temporary website.
Remember, you can make the website permanent and get advanced professional features with a Solo, or Pro subscription.
Again, I urge you to contact tiiny.host/help if you have any questions or comments. There is no obligation whatsoever.
