Hi Gael

You could host on the Data Hub http://datahub.io/, which is a service run
by the Open Knowledge Foundation (more info on CKAN and scientific data can
be found in this blog post from Mark Wainwright

Alternatively, there is figshare http://figshare.com/

Both require no passwords to download (you may need to provide minimal
registration information to upload) and will host files of that size.
