Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
There's a way to avoid the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file in the website’s root directory, but if you aren't very tech-savvy, we additionally provide a very time and effort saving tool that will permit you to activate the protection with just a few mouse clicks and without entering any code. The tool may be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our cloud website hosting and the only 2 things that you'll have to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and if the protection must be activated for the main website folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you will not have to do anything else by hand on your end. If you decide to deactivate the hotlink protection option sometime, you'll just have to come back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox beside it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you notice that someone has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the protection tool we have developed and incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Whenever you activate this feature, a server-generated image shall appear on the third-party Internet site as a substitute for your real images. You will only have to go to the Hotlink Protection section inside the Control Panel and pick the domain or subdomain that your website uses from a handy drop-down menu - it's as elementary as that. If needed, you shall also have the option to switch on the function only for a specific subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the function is as effortless - go back to the same section, check the box alongside the specific Internet site and then click on the Delete button.
