Public and Private URLs

This is a part of Cloage’s Knowledge Base. If you need more info on other subjects, simply check out our documentation here.

Note: Only files on the “professional partition” and the “S3 partition” can be public and can have a permanent direct download link which you can use to share them on your web pages, apps, etc.

To create a direct download link for your files, simply enter your professional partition, right-click on the file you want and click the “Public” option:

Note 1: To return your file to private mode and disable the direct download link, you can right-click on the file again and select “Make Private”.

Note 3: The “Make Public” option for files or the direct link is only accessible for Professional Partition files, and personal and free partition files will not have this option, and they can only send their files to others with a secret link or download it themselves. Also in the S3 Partitions, you can public the files of a bucket by defining a policy.

Note 4: The direct link to the public file in the professional partition on the Cloage subdomain will be something like this: https://yourusername.Cloage.io/partitionname/filename and in order for a direct link to be published on your own subdomain, you must use the ability to set a personal domain on a professional partition.

Note 5: There are other ways to share files, such as hidden and timed download links and sharing between Cloage users, all of which are described in the guide.
