    First convert it to pdf. If you use word, there should be a export to pdf option. As to how to upload, depends on where you would like to upload it?

    I would strongly advise you against uploading a PDF file. It could be very annoying when the PDF file wants to open in the browser and your whole browser gets frozen...

    Zip it! That should be the basic advice to give to new ebook authors. Word/OpenOffice > convert to PDF > Make it a zip file!

      I'd also advise against you uploading a PDF file.
      PDF files get indexed by search engines.
      Do Like Istvan advises and at least put it in a zip file.

      Also make sure that the download folder is not named something anyone could easily guess.

      Are you planning on selling this e-book or is it a free download?

    you can convert to pdf using a pdf converter just google it online.

    To upload a file to your host convert to pdf then upload like a site to your host. The url for the document will be your full site name as the file is saved on your computer.
    Eg if your site is called mehaknaheem.com and you saved the file as money.htm then the url for the document will be mehaknaheem.com/money.htm

    All the best
