i have to transfer some files to a remote linux system which has no gui
What I am planning to do is to upload files to a website and do a wget of it from command line.
Is there a file sharing web site which gives download friendly urls ?

Just use Dropbox. You only need to install it on the sender side. Just upload them to your public folder. They will then be accessible at the URL
The first part of the URL (up to your user id) is the same for all files you upload, so you can just store it in a variable and use it multiple times. The files' names are chosen by you, so you can easily give it short or rememberable names.
A huge advantage is that you can upload additional files without clicking through long dialogs or syncing new download URLS. You can also delete the files whenever you want, so that it is not available to anybody else later.
If you cannot install the client on the sender side (but have a reasonably modern graphical browser and a dropbox account) you can also upload via the Dropbox website.
