An easy way to put files on a testing server is using a web based file hosting service (e.g. Dropbox). Dropbox offers a public folder beside your private files and folders. Pushing files into the public folder will generate a public URL (e.g. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/YourID/YOURFILE.txt). This URL is then reachable from every browser. Use this service to easily test your ARchitect files in the ARchitect Mobile Viewer.
