Hotlinking Protection in Hosting
Because our hosting plans provide a simple and convenient hotlink protection tool, you'll be able to protect your content from appearing on third-party Internet sites with literally no more than 2 mouse clicks, even if you don't have a lot of experience with this type of matters. The tool is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and as soon as you open it, you'll only have to pick the domain or subdomain you want to protect. Optionally, you can also select if the hotlink protection will be enabled for the default domain root folder or just for a subfolder. You will not need to do anything else, as our system will create an .htaccess file automatically inside the needed location and will include the required code in it. All websites with enabled hotlink protection will be listed inside the very same section, so that you can disable this service for each of them with just a mouse click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you discover that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the security tool that we have designed and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. Whenever you switch on this function, a server-generated image shall appear on the third-party website in place of your actual images. You'll only need to check out the Hotlink Protection section in the CP and pick the domain or subdomain your site uses from a convenient drop-down menu - it's as elementary as that. If necessary, you shall also have the option to activate the feature just for a specific subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the feature is equally simple - go back to the same section, check the box next to the specific website and then press the Delete button.
