Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Because our cloud website hosting plans include a simple and practical hotlink protection tool, you will be able to protect your content from displaying on third-party Internet sites with literally just a couple of clicks, even if you do not have much experience with this sort of matters. The tool comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and as soon as you open it, you'll only need to pick the domain or subdomain that you would like to protect. Optionally, you may also select if the hotlink protection will be enabled for the default domain root folder or exclusively for a subfolder. You shall not need to do anything else, as our system will create an .htaccess file automatically in the desired location and will add the required code within it. All sites with active hotlink protection will be listed in the very same section, so you could disable this service for each of them with just a click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you find out that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the security tool that we have created and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. When you switch on this function, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party website rather than your actual images. You will only have to visit the Hotlink Protection section inside the CP and pick the domain or subdomain your site uses from a practical drop-down menu - it's as basic as that. If required, you shall also have the option to enable the feature for a specific subfolder and not for the website in general. Deactivating the protection is as easy - return to exactly the same section, check the box beside the specific site and then press the Delete button.
