Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
It will not take more than a number of mouse clicks to enable the hotlink protection feature which we offer you even if this is the 1st web hosting account that you use, since all of our shared hosting plans come with a simple and easy-to-use tool that will permit you to prevent direct links to your content. The tool is part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel, so it offers the same exact intuitive point & click interface. When you log in to your account’s back office and go to the Hotlink Protection section, you will only need to pick the domain or subdomain you want to secure from a drop-down list. If you wish to activate this function only for a specific site folder, you will have the option to do that. All sites with enabled hotlink protection shall appear within this section and you can easily disable the service by selecting the checkbox alongside the given Internet site and clicking on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want other individuals to use your images on their websites without your approval, you can easily enable the hotlink protection feature, which is offered with all semi-dedicated server package deals. As opposed to setting up an .htaccess file by hand inside the Internet site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the traditional method to deny direct linking to files, you could use an incredibly simple tool, which we've included in the Hepsia Control Panel. Using it, you'll only need to pick the website that needs to be secured and our system shall do the rest. Furthermore, you can make a decision whether the .htaccess file needs to be set up directly within the root folder or inside a subfolder, if you'd like to switch on the hotlink security function just for some content and not for the entire Internet site. Disabling it is just as effortless - you will simply need to mark the checkbox beside the particular site and to click on the Delete button.
