Hotlinking Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can easily protect your content if you set up an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but in case that you do not have previous experience, you need to use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is included with all shared website hosting packages that we offer and could be accessed via the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection could be turned on in 2 simple steps - pick the domain or subdomain for the site in question, then select if our system should create the .htaccess file in the primary folder or in a subfolder and you shall be all set. You don't require any computer programming expertise or any experience with this type of matters, because there shall be nothing else to do. If you'd like to disable the protection at some time, you can see all of the websites that are protected within the same section of the CP with a Delete button next to each one of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you discover that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you can use the security tool we've designed and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. When you enable this option, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party Internet site rather than your actual images. You'll only need to navigate to the Hotlink Protection section in the Control Panel and select the domain or subdomain that your website uses from a handy drop-down menu - it's as basic as that. If required, you'll also have the option to switch on the feature for a specific subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the protection is just as effortless - return to exactly the same section, check the box alongside the given Internet site and then click on the Delete button.
