We sometimes get some complains about shortener we’re using. Usually it’s emails saying we’re horrible people for using bad ads, trying to harm users and their devices.
You should know that we care the most about this. When we decide to use a shortener I personally go through a shortened link to see how the system works. But shorteners change their behaviour often, so we don’t always know what’s going on there. We can’t check all of them everyday. So, I decided to write this little article about 3 tips you should know and use.
1- Always use a good security software.
First and foremost is the security software. Internet is a dangerous place without antiviruses and firewalls. If you encounter harmful ads often, then your security software is not good enough. Using this website or not, always use a powerful security software.
2- Shorteners are dynamic.
If you didn’t already notice, we use multiple shorteners. It changes every time you click on a link. If a particular one bothers you, close it and click on the same download link again. It’ll change to another shortener. Simple as that.
3- Report bad shorteners.
Well, don’t bomb us naming all the shorteners we use, but If we get multiple bad reports about a shortener we will stop using it. We did it multiple times before. At the end of the day, all shorteners use popups that may bother you. But some could be really harmful. Instead of blaming us for something we don’t know a thing about, do this.
4- Don’t download anything other than the files you needed.
If you offered an APK or EXE or any other file rather than the RAR file from us, DO NOT DOWNLOAD. Or if you already did it, delete it.
Also never subscribe to notifications or anything. it’s not necessary.
I should say, I wish there was another way, but there is not. By going through these shorteners you help this website to be alive. Some clicks to get your favourite TV-show or movie is not much to ask I think. The income we get from this shorteners are very low but we need it to do what we’re doing. There are huge expenses everyday that have to be paid. Shorteners don’t pay for visits from same user, they don’t pay if you use adblockers, they don’t pay if you use VPN. this makes it even harder.
I don’t want to bore you with details but let check a simple example. We need $150 monthly to pay for the hosting server. Only for the hardware. If we get $3 from every 1000 visitors. We need 50K downloads to get the $150 to pay for the hosting. That’s not it. About half of this visits are users with adblockers/VPN/Proxy/… and we don’t get paid for. so we need another 50000 downloads only to pay for one month’s fee for the hosting. So 100,000 people have to download something just for us to break even with the monthly hosting fee. And I’m telling you, there are lots of other things we have to pay for.
Many many shorteners don’t pay when they suppose to. they just disappear. We have to pay from our pockets then.
This is why we also really count on donations but that is not significant either.
If you are able and have the will to, make a donation and get rid of all this. Otherwise, you’re donating by ads you see. Hope you understand.
