Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
It shall not require more than several mouse clicks to switch on the hotlink protection function which we offer even if this is the 1st web hosting account which you use, due to the fact that all our shared hosting packages feature a simple and easy-to-use tool that will enable you to prevent direct links to your content. The tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, so it has the very same easy-to-use point-and-click interface. As soon as you log in to your account’s back office and go to the Hotlink Protection section, you'll simply need to pick the domain or subdomain that you would like to protect from a drop-down list. If you'd like to enable this feature only for a specific website folder, you've got the option to do that. All sites with enabled hotlink protection will appear in this section and you can easily disable the service by selecting the checkbox beside the given site and clicking on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you don't want others to use your images on their Internet sites without your approval, you may easily enable the hotlink protection function, that is available with all semi-dedicated server packages. As opposed to creating an .htaccess file by hand in the website folder and writing some code within it, which is the common approach to deny direct linking to files, you may use an exceedingly simple tool, which we have incorporated into the Hepsia CP. With it, you'll only need to select the site which needs to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Optionally, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file will be generated directly within the root folder or inside a subfolder, when you'd like to enable the hotlink security function only for some content and not for the entire Internet site. Deactivating it is just as simple - you will simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the specific Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
