  4. Click Download this file. (Make sure not to rename the file. If you have multiple copies of the file, delete any extra characters your computer may have added).

Step 2: Upload this file to your website

Upload this HTML file to your web server at the root folder (don’t upload to a subfolder or we won’t be able to access it). Root folder names vary by provider—common ones are public_html, www, or wwwroot.

Be sure not to rename the file when you upload it to your server, since we’ll be looking for an exact name match. For example, if you download pinterest-9d541.html, we won’t recognize it if you upload it with a different name, like pinterest-9d541-1.html.

Step 3: Finish setting up

Go back to Pinterest and click Finish (we’ll automatically check the file and confirm your site)
