Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
There is a method for preventing the hotlinking of your images through an .htaccess file within the website’s root directory, but if you aren't very tech-savvy, we also give you a very intuitive tool that shall permit you to activate the protection with just a few clicks and without entering any code. The tool could be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our cloud hosting and the only two things which you will need to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection needs to be enabled 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 disable the hotlink protection option eventually, you will simply 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 create a semi-dedicated server account and you discover that somebody is linking to your files without your consent, you will be able to easily cut them off by switching on the hotlink protection function that we provide. While the regular way to do this is to generate an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool that is able to do this automatically and you will only need to select the Internet site in question and to decide whether our system should generate the needed file within the main folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is a component of our custom Hepsia Control Panel and provides exactly the same user-friendly interface, so you will be able to use it with no problems even if you have never used any hosting service before. You could deactivate the hotlink security feature for any website/folder with a click from the same section.
