Hotlinking Protection in Web Hosting
There's a method for preventing the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file in the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we additionally offer a very user-friendly tool that will allow you to activate the protection with a few clicks and without entering any code. The tool may be accessed through the Hepsia CP, offered with all our web hosting plans and the only 2 things which you will have to select are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection must be activated for the main site folder or for some subfolder. Our system shall do the rest, so you shall not need to do anything else manually on your end. If you want to turn off the hotlink protection option eventually, you'll only have to go back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox next to it and to click on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account and you find out that another person is linking to your files without your permission, you will be able to easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink security function which we offer. While the standard way to do this is to generate an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool which can easily execute this automatically and you will only have to pick the Internet site in question and to decide whether our system should generate the necessary file within the primary folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is an element of our custom made Hepsia CP and has the exact same user-friendly interface, so you'll be able to use it with no issues even in case you have never used any website hosting service before. You can switch off the hotlink protection function for any website/folder with a mouse click through the exact same section.
