Hotlinking Protection in Hosting
There's a simple method for preventing the hotlinking of your images through an .htaccess file in the website’s root directory, but if you aren't very tech-savvy, we additionally give you a very easy-to-work-with tool that will allow you to activate the protection with just a few clicks and without typing any code. The tool can be accessed through the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all our Linux hosting service and the only two things that you'll have to choose are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection needs to be enabled for the main website folder or for some subfolder. Our system shall do the rest, so you shall not have to do anything else by hand on your end. If you decide to turn off the hotlink protection option at some point, you'll 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 start a semi-dedicated server account and you find out that somebody is linking to your files without your authorization, you could easily cut them off by switching on the hotlink protection function which we offer you. While the regular way to do this is to create an .htaccess file, we've got a special tool which is able to perform this automatically and you will only have to choose the website in question and to determine whether our system should create the required file in the main folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is part of our customized Hepsia CP and has the exact same user-friendly interface, so you'll be able to use it without issues even if you have never used any web hosting service before. You may deactivate the hotlink protection function for any website/folder with a click through the exact same section.
