Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
It will not take more than several mouse clicks to enable the hotlink security function that we offer you even if this is the 1st website hosting account that you use, because all our cloud hosting come with a quite simple and user-friendly tool that will permit you to prevent direct links to your content. The tool is a component of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel, so it features the same easy-to-use point-and-click interface. When you log in to your account’s back office and go to the Hotlink Protection section, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain you want to protect from a drop-down list. If you wish to enable this function only for a certain website folder, you've got the option to do that. All sites with active hotlink protection shall appear inside this section and you could turn off the service by selecting the checkbox alongside the given website and pressing the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want other people to use your images on their sites without your consent, you can easily switch on the hotlink security function, that is provided with all semi-dedicated server package deals. Rather than setting up an .htaccess file by hand in the website folder and writing some code in it, which is the conventional method to deny direct linking to files, you may use an exceptionally simple tool, which we have integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. By using it, you'll only need to choose the website that needs to be secured and our system will do the rest. Also, you can decide if the .htaccess file needs to be created straight inside the root folder or in a subfolder, in case you want to activate the hotlink security feature just for some content and not for the whole site. Stopping it is just as easy - you will only have to mark the checkbox beside the respective website and to click on the Delete button.
