Download from site w/password

Postby Marshall » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:40 am

I figured I would start a new topic Nick.

So I am trying to think of ways to get custom files that are typically only available via account login pages/etc.

Yes you can copy the file to a ftp site, your website, w/e on the net and give it a static download link. The problem with this is that if you want to be able to sell it, the entire plan goes down the drain. Sooner or later someone will either find the download and post it all over the web, or crack your password.

So I was wondering if we could experiment with this idea a bit, and find a way to download a file through an online account.

The entire idea as a whole may be flawed, and it may be an all out security risk, period. If other's feel this is true please post your idea's and reasoning, because it is absolutely useful.
