comment How to inform website owner if someone downloads something from the website?
Thanks for the concise answer and advice! However its a bit too vague for a beginner like me? if you've got the time perhaps you could link me to some tutorials that would show me how to achieve the above, or even just give me the sort of key words/terms i should be googling! that would really help! I've been trying to phrase what im looking for correctly but haven't had much luck

Thank you for your detailed answer and providing a good solution. The thing that concerns me about this method is just that this might be providing unnecessary hassle to the user (having to go to their emails just to get there hands on a basic document) however i will certainly put this idea to the website owner, thank you. One other question, i don't understand why this wouldnt scale well for sites with multiple free downloads? If youve got the time please explain it to me :) the website i'm working on will probably have 5-10 downloads. Thanks

Hah thank you very much i'll be sure too google for download counting solutions to get a basis to start on! But say for example in the tutorial you provided, at what point/in what file would i implement a form to request the users name? and where would i make a record of that?
