Hotlinking Protection in Web Hosting
Because our Linux web hosting packages provide a simple and convenient hotlink protection tool, you will be able to protect your content from appearing on third-party websites with literally no more than two clicks, even if you don't have very much experience with such matters. The tool comes with the Hepsia hosting CP and when you open it, you will just need to select the domain or subdomain you want to protect. Additionally, you could also choose if the hotlink protection will be active for the default domain root folder or exclusively for a subfolder. You'll not have to do anything else, because our system will create an .htaccess file automatically inside the needed location and will add the necessary code in it. All Internet websites with active hotlink protection will be listed within the same section, so you can easily disable this service for any of them with just a click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you don't want other people to use your images on their Internet sites without your permission, you may easily enable the hotlink security feature, that is supplied with all semi-dedicated server plans. As opposed to creating an .htaccess file by hand inside the Internet site folder and writing some code within it, which is the standard way to deny direct linking to files, you can use a really simple tool, that we have integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. Using it, you will only need to pick the site that needs to be protected and our system will do the rest. Optionally, you can choose if the .htaccess file needs to be set up straight in the root folder or in a subfolder, if you'd like to enable the hotlink security function just for some content and not for the entire Internet site. Stopping it is just as simple - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the specific site and to click on the Delete button.
