Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
There's a way of preventing the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file in 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 activate the protection with several clicks and without entering any code. The tool can be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our shared hosting and the only 2 things which you'll have to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection must be activated for the main website folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you won't have to do anything else by hand on your end. If you want to turn off the hotlink protection option sometime, you'll just have to come back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox next to it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account and you learn that somebody is linking to your files without your permission, you may easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink protection feature which we offer. While the common method of doing this is to create an .htaccess file, we have a special tool that can easily do this automatically and you shall only need to pick the Internet site in question and to decide whether our system should generate the needed file within the main folder or in a subfolder. The tool is an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel and has exactly the same user-friendly interface, so you'll be able to use it with no issues even when you have never used any web hosting service before. You'll be able to disable the hotlink protection feature for any website/folder with a mouse click through exactly the same section.
