Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
There's a simple way of preventing the hotlinking of your images by using an .htaccess file inside the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we furthermore provide a very user-friendly tool that will allow you to enable the protection with a few clicks and without entering any code. The tool could be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our Linux cloud packages and the only two things that you'll need to select are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection must be activated for the main site folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you will not need to do anything else manually on your end. If you choose to deactivate the hotlink protection option at some point, you will just need to return to the same section, to mark the checkbox beside it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you start a semi-dedicated server account and you discover that somebody is linking to your files without your permission, you may easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink security function that we provide. While the standard technique of doing that is to create an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool that is able to execute this automatically and you will only need to choose the site in question and to determine whether our system should set up the necessary file inside the main folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is a component of our custom Hepsia Control Panel and offers the same user-friendly interface, so you will be able to use it without any problems even in case you have never used any website hosting service before. You could turn off the hotlink security feature for any website/folder with a mouse click through the same section.
