And just like you know Google being a provider of the different free services which include Blogger, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Adsense, YouTube, Google Plus, Play, News, Maps and many others, the same Google product which is known as Google Sites is what we are going to use and which will help you to build your own File storage and sharing site where you can store applications, software, music, photos, documents and many others which you can either offer for free or for a pay depending on what you are interested.
Remember, once you are done with uploading any of your files, you can choose to only show it those who have paid in case its for a pay and or to simply link to it by way of adding a hyper link to any of your sites or even on the same Google sites powered sites since the same product can be used to creating stunning, professional and good looking websites, and below we go.

2. Select Create New Site, Choose your template, enter your preferred site name choice for example thekonsulthubfiles, enter the site location or URL, select a theme to use, click on more options and add a site description, enter Captcha and click on create on your page top and wait for a few seconds.
3. Click on Add New page above page on your left, enter the name of the page for example files and select File Cabinet under “Select a template to use” option since that is a special template which is designed purposely for file storage.
