1. Register an account on Github

So you can update/manage your hosted files.

2. Go to https://gist.github.com

3. Paste filename including extension

4. Paste file contents

5. Click “Create secret gist”

6. Click on “Raw”

7. Follow instructions from How to embed files hosted on Github

Note that you can only host text files, if a plugin requires images or other assets, you have to find a different host for the plugin.
