Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
There's a way to avoid the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file within the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we additionally give you a very easy-to-work-with tool that will permit you to enable the protection with just a few clicks and without inputting any code. The tool may be accessed from the Hepsia CP, offered with all our Linux shared hosting and the only two things that you will need to choose are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and if the protection has to be activated for the main site folder or for some subfolder. Our system shall do the rest, so you shall not have to do anything else manually on your end. If you want to turn off the hotlink protection option eventually, you will only have to come back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox at the side of it and to press 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 authorization, you can easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink protection feature which we provide. While the typical way to do this is to create an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool that can easily perform this automatically and you'll simply have to select the site in question and to determine whether our system should generate the necessary file in the main folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel and has exactly the same user-friendly interface, so you will be able to use it without any complications even in case you have never used any web hosting service before. You could switch off the hotlink security feature for any website/folder with a click from exactly the same section.
