List of accepted files to upload to the website

Only certain file types can be uploaded to websites for security reasons, a feature part of the free version. We avoid misuse of our services, one that involves the intent to spread viruses and other malware.

The maximum file size you are able to upload with the free package is 8MB. With a premium package, you are able to upload files up to 400MB. If you would like to upload a larger file, we recommend that you use an external platform. This is due to the high level of traffic generated while downloading files.

File extensions supported by Webnode are:


.pdf (Portable Document Format, Adobe Acrobat)
.doc, .docx (Microsoft Word)
.ppt, .pptx, .pps, .ppsx (Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation)
.odt (OpenDocument Text)
.xls, .xlsx (Microsoft Excel)
.txt (text/plain)
.rtf (Rich Text Format)

Audio files
.wma (Windows Media Audio)

Video files
.wmv (Windows Media Video)
.mov (QuickTime)

In order to upload other file types not specified in this list and many other features available for your site, get one of our Premium packages (How can I order Premium services?).

How can I find the type of the file?

  1. Right-click on the file and select "Properties".
  2. In the new window, you will see the "Type of file". If the file does not match any of those shown in the list above, you can try to find a format converter program online.

  See the file type in "Properties".
