DLGuard Description

DLGuard is a script created by Sam Stephens. Sam saw a problem of digital theft affecting many Internet marketers and created a solution to guard it from pirates. The script is set up to deliver your product to your customers by checking with your payment processor and making sure that they actually paid for your product.

DLGuard Detailed Overview

One of the biggest problems for Internet marketers that sell digital products is digital theft. This is a huge issue as many people share their download links in sites, forums, and blogs. Even worse, search engines will often index your download pages and there are many methods out there to crawl your site and find your download pages.

DLGuard is a service protects your products. It works by integrating with your payment processor (it currently works with Paypal, Authorize.net, Clickbank, PayDotCom, e-Gold, Worldpay, AlertPay, and more). DLGuard works whether you’re selling a single product or multiple products. That means that if you sell 4 different products and your customers adds 3 of them (using DLGuard’s shopping cart), they will be given the download links to those 3 products.

DLGuard also works with membership sites. Whether you charge a one time membership fee or a recurring membership fee, you can quickly set it up so that only customers will get access to your private content area. If they decide to cancel, they will be locked out whether it be an exclusive forum, page, or blog.

Because link sharing is a problem, you can set it so that customers have a certain number of downloads and/or time limit to download your product. So if somebody ever does decide to purchase and share your download links, the damage will be reduced and the distribution of your product will be limited. And you won’t have to worry about your download pages as DLGuard checks to see if there’s a successful payment before letting somebody see the download page.

Aside from the security features, there are some cool extras. You can track and view who downloaded you products, add people to your mailing list after the sale is made, set up coupons, figure out your conversion rates, ban specific customers, and even customize the look of DLGuard so you brand your sites with your logo/business name.

I found the interface very clean and it was a breeze to add products to DLGuard. Everything is intuitive and very straightforward. You won’t have any problems figuring out what’s what despite the fact that DLGuard has so many features. The product costs $147 for two site licenses (which means you can run DLGuard on two different domains). This is not to be mistaken as that you can only add two products to DLGuard.

DLGuard Reputation

DLGuard is one of the best security scripts in the market and it is worth every penny as unsecure download links can be hundreds, even thousands of dollars in lost sales. The product has received positive reviews from Internet marketers for its use and effectiveness. The support is also top notch (even though you won’t need it), and I highly recommend DLGuard for anybody that sells digital products online.

Its just an ok product

I tried this product after hearing raves about it. My issue was that I could not upload it (yes, you have to put it on your server) without help. It does contain an easy automatic way but it depends on who is your hosting company. I always hear about how fast the customer response was but it was not my case. It took about 4 days of going back and forth before they helped and actually did it for me. The person responding was always professional and courteous. My issue was that the steps he took could have easily been posted on the forum as a slide show or video therefore, I could have saved 4 days of back and forth. I found out later that there is a tutorial for "sale" on how to use this product. The other thing that simply took my confidence away was that a "guru" posted on her site that when she contacted DLG to help her "mom" it was done in 2 hrs! Lastly, you have to access your server to upload products. That is simply not something I was expecting from a product that is suppose to be easy. Just my 2 cents..

Really great program

If you are selling products online like ebooks, this is a great way to protect them from theft. Without a program like this you can lose a lot of money in sales when someone steals your stuff and then shares it. It has a great interface and is easy to use. I personally use it on all my websites where I sell stuff. It also has other great features like tracking who downloads your products, your CTR, coupon codes and you can also ban specific customers if you need to. I have used all of these features and they are very useful.

If you want to make your product downloads secure, this is the top product.

A Simply Brilliant Product!

I currently run a few websites, some for personal use, others for monetary gain, and I use DLGuard to run them, and it makes the whole process so much easier.

One thing I like about DLGuard is the fact that there are several payment options. While most delivery scripts use only one or two different payment options, DLGuard gives you ten different ones!

Another aspect of DLGuard that I love is the fact that it is easy to use. DLGuard is written in simple English and is set up in a way that eases your mind. After a while, it can become addicting to use even!

The one thing that I don't like about it is it's price, which is at about 127 dollars. To some, this may seem a hefty price to pay, and I agree. But I can assure you, in the long run, this product is well worth it.
