Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
You can easily shield your content if you create an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but just in case you don't have previous experience, you should use our hotlink protection tool. The latter comes with all shared hosting package deals that we offer and could be accessed from the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection can be enabled in 2 simple steps - pick the domain or subdomain for the website in question, then select if our system should set up the .htaccess file within the main folder or within a subfolder and you shall be good to go. You don't need any computer programming capabilities or any experience with this kind of matters, due to the fact that there will be nothing else to do. If you wish to turn off the protection eventually, you can see all the Internet sites that are protected inside the same exact section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each one of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you notice that someone has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the protection tool that we have developed and incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. When you activate this feature, a server-generated image shall appear on the third-party site instead of your real images. You'll only need to check out the Hotlink Protection section inside the Control Panel and pick the domain or subdomain your website uses from a convenient drop-down menu - it's as elementary as that. When necessary, you'll also have the option to enable the feature for a particular subfolder and not for the website in general. Deactivating the feature is as easy - return to the very same section, check the box next to the specific site and then click on the Delete button.
