How to host a file at root level

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I need to host a file at the root level of my site e.g. https://example.com/file_name.txt

Right now the only option I found is to get https://example.com/s/file_name.txt by going to Pages, adding an Unlinked page that is a Link to a File, but I cannot remove the /s part of the URL, which is critical for crawlers to pick up the file. 

How do I manage serving a file at the root level of the domain?

On Squarespace, you cannot host a file without the "/s/" part of the URL. You will need to host the file on a different platform. I appreciate this is not what you wanted to hear, but I hope this saves you lots of time looking for a solution that doesn't exist 🙂
