Hi

I want my clients to download some small scripts from my website. I will be displaying the list of scripts and after the successful payment, I want to give them a link to download.

Now, my question is how to make the download safer. The client should not distribute the link or it should not be accessed directly. Any thoughts?

The downside to what you are considering is this - no matter how you protect the download, once they have downloaded it they can do what they like with it including redistribution.

On that basis you might want to consider if it is worth the effort of protecting the download
