Store pdf files for a website

Hello community! I’m close to get my first work of web development and I have plenty of doubts. I was told to build a website about economic and political related articles.
I’m checking out the site as a reference I got, and it has a lot of links to download pdf file documents for each article, so when you click on “download pdf” it redirects me to https://mcusercontent.com/e9c6f62a4dc825f6a9dab4e88/files/a8fc150a-9a12-4064-ab67-37791e5719b6/2020.09.15_Evolución_de_los_concursos_y_quiebras_entre_2016_y_2020_CEPA.pdf , for example.
My question is: is there any free tool or site where I can save a lot of pdf files to get a download link like that? I don’t know what mcusercontent.com is. If there is no free options, which site or service do you recommend? Thanks

I think you have a pdf on your site, the browser will automatically open it like that if you click on it?

Yes, let´s imagine you have to upload a lot of pdf files to somewhere, so when you click “view pdf” or “download” , it opens a new tab pointing to the pdf file. Like this: https://gallery.mailchimp.com/e9c6f62a4dc825f6a9dab4e88/files/2f6c4d3b-12ce-47d8-8795-d55caea2c86d/Análisis_de_la_situación_de_los_comercios_en_B.Bca.2019.pdf
Is there any free way to save a lot of pdf files in someplace for that purpose?

It doesn’t seem that address works for me. But if I am understanding you correctly, you just need to upload the pdfs somewhere and then create links to them. If you don’t have your own web hosting (it’s nice to have somewhere to put your stuff!), you could probably put them in GitHub for free.

Yes, you understood well. I think it’s time to buy some web hosting for me. In the meantime, Github seems to be a good option. Thanks a lot Cactus! :grinning:
