News by Matt S.
This is just a quick note to all of our readers to let you know that, with DigitallyDownloaded.net’s previous paywall provider closing its doors, we’ve been forced to move over to a new provider.
All DDNet Premium articles moving forwards will be under this new subscription service, which will operate in the same way; you’ll be able to pay a small monthly fee for unlimited access to all premium articles, or you can access an individual article for a small one-off fee. We think you’ll find it a nicer system to use, though!
Because the existing paywall will no longer work, we will need to remove it for all existing articles, which will happen over the coming weeks – it’s a time intensive process, so please be patient with us while we do this. After that, all those articles will remain free to access into perpetuity.
To all our existing subscribers, in order to properly compensate you for your ongoing support, you will soon receive an email that has a promo code in it, which will provide you with a free month’s access to the new subscription system.
To everyone that has supported DDNet to date; thank you for your support! It’s important that publishers can make money in order to be able to continue providing content, and as advertising simply doesn’t work in a sustainable fashion for any online publication, this is how we must survive. And the good news is that this new Premium provider makes it much easier to produce premium content, so you can expect a great deal more of it!
And we’ll finally be able to get the newsletter system going, so DDNet subscribers will get a digest of the best articles each week delivered direct to their inboxes.
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any queries at all.
– Matt and the DDNet team.
