Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
It will not take more than a few mouse clicks to switch on the hotlink protection function we provide even if this is the first hosting account you use, because all of our Linux shared packages feature a simple and user-friendly tool that will permit you to stop direct links to your content. The tool is part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel, so it offers the same easy-to-use point & click interface. As soon as you log in to your account’s back office and navigate to the Hotlink Protection section, you will simply have to select the domain or subdomain that you'd like to secure from a drop-down list. If you would like to enable this feature only for a particular site folder, you've got the option to do that. All websites with enabled hotlink protection will appear in this section and you can deactivate the service by selecting the checkbox beside the given site and pressing the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you do not want other individuals to use your images on their websites without your authorization, you can easily enable the hotlink protection feature, which is offered with all semi-dedicated server plans. Instead of setting up an .htaccess file by hand within the Internet site folder and writing some code within it, which is the common approach to deny direct linking to files, you may use an exceptionally simple tool, which we've integrated into the Hepsia CP. Using it, you'll simply have to choose the website which needs to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Optionally, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file should be created directly within the root folder or within a subfolder, when you want to switch on the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the whole Internet site. Stopping it is just as effortless - you'll only have to mark the checkbox next to the respective site and to click on the Delete button.
