If you are interested in licensing your work but would prefer to host it at your own website, ccPublisher can generate a piece of HTML which contains machine-readable information about the license you selected. This allows people who download your work with embedded license information to validate the license.

The verification URL is URL of the page which you will paste the verification HTML into. The verification HTML contains a hash of the file you are licensing, which allows software to validate the file's license.

Step seven: Save the Generated HTML
