Hotlinking Protection in Hosting
You can easily secure your content if you create an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but if you do not have previous experience, you could use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is supplied with all hosting plans we offer and could be accessed using the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection could be turned on in two basic steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then select if our system should set up the .htaccess file inside the primary folder or within a subfolder and you will be ready. You don't require any programming skills or any experience with such matters, since there shall be nothing else to do. If you want to disable the protection at some point, you could see all the Internet sites that are protected within the exact same section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you notice that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the security tool we've designed and integrated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. Once you switch on this option, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party site instead of your real images. You'll only need to check out the Hotlink Protection section within the Control Panel and choose the domain or subdomain that your Internet site uses from a handy drop-down menu - it is as simple as that. If necessary, you'll also have the option to enable the feature only for a specific subfolder and not for the website as a whole. Deactivating the feature is equally effortless - go back to exactly the same section, check the box alongside the specific Internet site and then click on the Delete button.
