Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
There is a method for preventing the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file in the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we additionally give you a very helpful tool that shall permit you to activate the protection with just a few clicks and without writing any code. The tool could be accessed via the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our cloud web hosting and the only 2 things which you'll need to select are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection needs to be activated for the main website folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you will not have to do anything else personally on your end. If you wish to deactivate the hotlink protection option at some point, you'll only have to come back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox beside it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you start a semi-dedicated server account and you learn that someone is linking to your files without your consent, you can easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink security function that we provide. While the standard way to do that is to create an .htaccess file, we have a special tool that can easily do this automatically and you will only need to select the website in question and to determine whether our system should set up the required file in the primary folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is a component of our custom Hepsia CP and offers the same user-friendly interface, so you'll be able to use it with no complications even in case you have never used any website hosting service before. You could turn off the hotlink protection function for any website/folder with a mouse click through the same section.
