Suffer Huge Revenue Loss

Digital piracy causes $300 million lost for US publishers every single year. Your business could suffer the same fate without any decent protection.

Prevent Direct Access (PDA) Gold

I'm pleased with Prevent Direct Access Gold

“I want to say that I’m pleased with your product. Since I’ve been using it, I have not discovered any plagiarizing.
– Darlene Lancer, author of Codependency For Dummies 

Great plugin and extensions that don't Slow down your site!

“Great plugin and extensions that protect content and don’t slow down your site, unlike many media protection plugins out there!! Support is always on hand, speedy and thorough.”
– Edward Wilkins, UK,

INCREDIBLE & Competent Service!

“If you are attracting users to your websites by offering valuable downloads to your readers, this plugin is a must-have. You'll be offering great value to your loyal subscribers, whilst making sure your hard-work is not being abused and downloaded directly. The team behind the plugin is also fantastic to deal with.”
Marc Weber Tobias, Lead Attorney & President at Investigative Law Offices

Prevent Direct Access - The Number One Plugin to Protect WordPress Media Files & Restrict File Access

Brilliant, Impressive and GREAT SUPPORT!

“While it took a couple of days to get all the kinks worked out, once it was running, it works *brilliantly*! Support was responsive, friendly, and on top of their game.

This is far more involved than your typical plugin. Server-level redirects and access rules must be configured. No two environments are identical. It’s impressive they can deliver the promised functionality across hosting platforms, including with NGINX rather than Apache. Good job!”
– Gordon Seirup, US,

Does Exactly What it Says!

“Easy to configure and works as advertised. I got the gold version for the extended features, and I’m very happy with it. I had a few questions and support got back to me in a quick and professional manner! 5/5 stars for sure.”
 Ruben, Norway, Agency Owner


“I want to thank your team. I would have probably put a lot more time without your help as I'm not a computer scientist. Especially interested in the extension (PDA Protect WordPress Videos) which is easy to use and does the job I expected. Superb!
Your team has been responsive, patient and professional!”
– Lukas, France,

PERFECT Solution & Awesome Support

“This plug-in was everything I was hoping for and more. So grateful I found it and the support is stellar. They go above and beyond if needed even working longer hours. Easy to use, intuitive and perfect for protecting my digital files with custom options to do so. Thank you PDA Gold!”
 Nancy Beaton, Canada


Great Products!

“I purchased Prevent Direct Access Gold and Download Link Restriction Extension. Both great products that are easy to use and do what they so they will. I also enjoyed excellent and prompt support. Well done.”
– Regan Kendrick, New Zealand



“Thanks sooooo much for your support. You’ve been doing a great job so far in fulfilling my needs with regard to page restrictions.”
