Instructions on how to become a supporter
This website uses Paypal to receive funds, but you can subscribe as a guest if you don’t want to create a Paypal account.
Make sure you read the terms and FAQs section below to better understand the subscription.
To continue, please follow these 3 steps closely:
1. Hit a Subscribe button below to make a payment via PayPal.
The process, when completed, will create an account with Dong Knows Tech using the payment email address. This email address will be your username and can’t be changed — make sure you use a valid address!
2. An automated message will be sent to your email address with instructions on how to log in.
If you don’t receive this message within a few minutes, check your email account’s spam or junk folder. Alternatively, you can immediately follow this link and enter the same email address to reset the password for the account. (Contact us if need more help.)
3. Log in. Refresh any existing page or close the browser and re-open it.
If you use more than one browser, you must log in with each. Also, the login section might expire after a while, and you will need to log in again — this is especially true when you choose to block cookies, etc.
Terms and frequently asked questions
Have more questions than those answered below? Here’s the contact page.
By subscribing, you agree to an initial and recurring periodical subscription fee at the current rate, such as $9.99/month or $69.99/year, and you will send the amount to Dong Knows Tech. Rates are subject to change.
You understand that Dong Knows Tech does not actively charge you; it only receives the money you send. You can cancel the subscription at any time by stopping the payment.
Dong Knows Tech has no access to your financial information. Consequently, it bears no responsibility if you change your mind or send money by mistake, error, or as a result of fraud. We do not issue refunds.
All we can do about your subscription is to help with the password or remove your account — we can’t remove your scheduled payments since we have no access to your PayPal account.
Is there a trial period?
No, you can read the site even without this subscription. This option is for those who want to support the site’s work deliberately. It’s a form of donation with benefits.
Can I move from one plan to another?
Yes — simply cancel one and then subscribe for another. (You can also have both plans overlapping each other.)
I’m locked out. What should I do?
For security reasons, if you enter the wrong username or password multiple times in a row, your WAN IP address will be locked out from your DKT account for one hour — you can still visit the site during this time.
The IP will be unlocked automatically after an hour — all you can do is wait.
Please don’t keep trying to log in if you haven’t subscribed — your IP might get blocked for an extended period or permanently from viewing the site.
If you have subscribed but forgotten your email, use the contact page.
How do I cancel?
You manage that within your Paypal account. If you subscribe as a guest, notify Paypal via the information in your receipt.
Please note that we can’t stop the payments for you — there’s no mechanism for us to do that. All we can do is remove your information from our end, if you so request, and end the subscription’s benefits.
What happens when I cancel?
You can enjoy the benefits until the final paid period ends. During this time, you can re-subscribe anytime. After that, your account with Dong Knows Tech will be put in limbo or deleted. You’ll need to subscribe anew if you change your mind.
How do I sign out?
Click on this link and confirm. You’ll be redirected to the site’s front page. There’s also a sign-out option when you leave or reply to comments under any post.
How do I change my information?
Follow the 🧝 Profile link in the site’s green welcome banner under the main menu at the top — the link is only available to a logged-in user — to access your profile page.
Note that the username can’t be changed. Also, the profile doesn’t contain your subscription information — you manage that via Paypal.
What will happen to my email address?
Nothing. It’s only used to identify you as a subscriber and for you to recover your password. It has nothing to do with the site’s newsletter or post notifications and Dong Knows Tech will not use it for any purpose other than the initial message with login instructions. If you unsubscribe, your email will eventually be permanently removed.
As a subscriber, you’ll be identified as such when you post a comment, at which time you can opt-in to receive notifications when a new post is published or subscribe to the newsletter.
What if I want to pay more (or less) than the current subscription?
To increase our support, please subscribe to an additional monthly donation plan.
If you want to enjoy add-free with a lower subscription cost, also subscribe to a reasonable donation plan that fits your budget and includes a message explaining your intention. When applicable, a special subscriber account will be created for you.
