Default How Should I Protect the Download Page and my eBook?

Hi,

How do I go about protecting the download page? From my research here is what I have found

1. Include no index, no archive meta tags in the page
2. Give a random name to the page that cannot be guessed
3. Change the download page frequently
Any other tips?

Coming to eBook protection

1. How do I protect my ebook against illegal sharing?

I see that e-junkie has a digital stamping mechanism... But if I use clickbank, I cant have that.

Do you think I should use any paid scripts for this?

I am planning to build my landing page using wordpress.... Is there any free plugins available?

Thanks

Require a username and password to access the website or to initialize the download. Google to find out how to add a username/password to your page - then distribute usernames/passwords to your buyers.

Hi,

Thats easy to set up a password for the page.... But is it possible to automatically deliver the password to the email address of the buyer once he/she signs up?

Manually sending it will take lot of time (depending on time zones, free time etc )and may frustrate my buyer

I assume you are already sending the user an email of some sort to confirm that they signed up - you can include the username and password in that e-mail. This is particularly easy if you are just using one blanket username/password instead of assigning a different one to each user, which is unnecessary in my opinion for your case.

Buy DLGuard. It automates the payment/download process and creates expiring links after payment for each product and you can use it on as many products as you want. Don't know what I would do without it.

If you use e-junkie to deliver the book, give one occurrence for download and let them download the ebook from e-junkie. If they are going to download the book from your site, still use e-junkie. When they pay for the ebook, have them receive instructions on how to go to the protected page on your site for the download and what password to use. Just create a simple text file with instructions and thank them again for buying.

people will find a way to download anything, but if you must I also suggest DLGuard. Password protecting your ebook(pdf) is great too but will be mundane for readers to always type the password.

I will be using clickbank and will redirect the user to the download page once the payment is completed. Can we customize the email sent by clickbank on behalf of teh order to include the password as well?

I am not sure if I want to pay 147$ for this one.... I am planning to use clickbank and e-junkie together. But for that to happen, my product must already be approved.

Does clickbank provide pdf stamping or any such mechanisms?
