What is the PAD Database for?
The PAD Database is a database which contains PAD files. PAD files are small XML files that fully describe a shareware, freeware, or commercial application. Using a pad database, like this one, you will have access to 1000's of pad files. This is a great tool for anyone wanting to run or running a software website of any type.
What do I get when I purchase the database?
The PAD Database is delivered as a text file containing the URLs of all PAD files in our database.
I submitted my application but it's not appearing in the database. Why?
Since PAD files are reviewed and then added to our database for inclusion in our next crawl it may take several days or weeks for a new listing to appear. We use a custom developed PAD Crawler
to accurately crawl the PAD files, filter out duplicates and verify against our comprehensive blacklist.
What do I do if my application is duplicated with a different URL other than my company's website?
Please contact us
right away so we can clear up this situation. We take fraudulent submissions very serious. Any company caught submitting fraudulent pad files, spamming the database, or submitting bogus pad files may be blacklisted from future submissions.
Why should I buy this PAD Database over other PAD File databases?
This database is priced so you can cheapily get a complete PAD database unlike our competitors who are selling theirs for hundreds or thousands of dollars. We are constantly crawling the database adding and editing existing PAD files to ensure the information you receive is as fresh as possible. We are also taking measures to prevent invalid, fraudulent, spamming, redirected, or other underhanded PAD files from making it into the pad database.
I currently run an active shareware / freeware website, would you consider trading databases?
Yes. We would love to trade databases with any shareware or freeware website that has been active for longer than 1 year. Just contact us
for information on this.
