Maximizing the web visitor's website experience and accessibility is a continuing goal of every website. Amazon Web Services (AWS) have provided a low cost solution that provides quicker website load times and makes streaming video content, a viable option. Instead of a all of awebsite's content originating from that domains host, AWS allows selected parts of a website's content to originate from Amazon's closest server - thereby increasing the speed of the data delivery and subsequent reduction on load times.
While AWS been very beneficial for public area content of websites, the password restricted areas of website content, many times which are paid members only areas, is vulnerable to file sharing to non paid members, since the actual file location on Amazon's servers is exposed and is readily accessible. Biz's S3 Downloader software conceals the actual Amazon Web Services files urls and makes it appear to the user that the file is being downloaded directly from the website, not AWS. In addition to the actual AWS url being concealed, if the user were to share the download url with anyone - they will receive a message telling them how to become a paying member.
Webmasters who integrate Amazon Web Services with their websites will result in better web visitors experiences. Now with the S3 Downloader software you can expand your usage to provide paid content download files including: exe, avi, mp3, pdf, swf, zip, mov, html, flv, mpg, mpeg, rar, txt, wav, wma, wmv, asf formats. The S3Downloader also has the functionality of Allowing you to directly display html and streaming media files without a download dialog box Your S3 url is completely concealed from the user!
