Linklok URL - Secure download links on your site
What is Linklok URL?Linklok URL allows you to place links to download files (or embedded images etc) on your website while securely hiding the true location of the files. The actual files linked to can actually be stored anywhere on your server (within or outside of webroot) or with Amazon S3, Dropbox, Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage, Digital Ocean Spaces or Google Cloud Storage. Links are automatically authenticated using secure hashing and can be set to expire between 1 minute and several years after creation if required. Links can also be locked to the users IP address ensuring they can't be shared even before they expire! There is basically no way an internet user can find out the actual location of your files.
What else can it do?As well as securing links on your pages Linklok URL can also be used with a form to collect user data and email secure links to the user. This way you can be sure to get a valid email. An optional captcha can be used to stop bots. When used with a form Linklok URL can automatically add the user to your mailing list with AWeber, Mailchimp, GetResponse and ARP Reach currently supported. There is an option to block free type emails such as hotmail or yahoo and even to watermark PDF downloads with the users email address. You can download the manual below to read about other options.
Example 1Linklok URL can create links within your page dynamically as the page is created. The following download link securely hides the true location on the server where the file is stored.
Example 2The following image also has the location hidden and has a 10 minute expiry time. This means that if someone copies the link and places it on another site (a forum for example) it will stop working after 10 minutes. A user accessing the image correctly from our site will have no problems seeing the image even if they refresh the page.
Example 3Linklok URL can also lock links to the IP address of the user. This feature can of course be combined with an expiry time as well. To handle ISP's who change their IP address for each access you can adjust how many parts of the IP address to verify. We suggest checking only the first 3 parts as in the example below.
Example 4Linklok URL can work with a form to email the user the secure download link(s). The example form below will send you a link to download the manual for Linklok URL. Be sure to enter your real email address (which we won't use for any purpose) otherwise you won't receive the link. The link will be valid for 60 minutes and is not IP locked. We also demonstrate the PDF watermarking feature of Linklok URL by adding your email to each page of the PDF file.
