When it comes time to deliver your valuable digital content to leads and customers, making it to the inbox is everything. In response to many inbox service providers (ISPs) interpreting file attachments as spam, Ontraport created File Manager — a tool that allows you to upload your files to your account and generate a download link that you can place in emails and on your landing pages.


In this article, you will learn how to upload your files to File Manager and add them to your Ontraport pages and emails.

To upload files

The file manager allows you to upload and host file types such as, DOC, PDF, MP3, GIF, PNG, JPG. If you’d like to host a video file, follow the separate set of steps later in the article.

  • If the file name already exists in the File Manager, you can choose to replace the existing version or to rename the file you’re uploading.

Hosting Videos

You can host your video files in Ontraport, and add them to your pages in two different ways:

  1. For Ontraport Pages: You can add a video element to your pages.
  2. For pages on your WordPress site: You can use the add media option from the PilotPress settings in the WordPress editor.

To upload a video file

  • Prepare your video file for upload.
    1. The Video Manager accepts most video file types (3GP, AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MPEG, OGG/OGV, WEBM and WMV). Any of these formats work when using the video in landing pages or on a WordPress site.
    2. Make sure your video file is less than 200 MB in size. For videos that exceed this size, use a different hosting service such as YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia.
