Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
There's a way to avoid the hotlinking of your images through an .htaccess file within the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we also provide a very intuitive tool that will allow you to activate the protection with a couple of clicks and without typing any code. The tool could be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our Linux cloud hosting plans and the only two things which you will have to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection needs to be activated for the main Internet site folder or for some subfolder. Our system shall do the rest, so you shall not have to do anything else personally on your end. If you decide to deactivate the hotlink protection option sometime, you will only have to return to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox at the side of it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want others to use your images on their Internet sites without your approval, you may easily activate the hotlink protection function, that is available with all semi-dedicated server package deals. As opposed to generating an .htaccess file yourself in the site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the standard way to deny direct linking to files, you can use an exceptionally simple tool, which we've integrated into the Hepsia CP. By using it, you will only have to choose the Internet site which has to be protected and our system will do the rest. Also, you can determine whether the .htaccess file should be created directly in the root folder or within a subfolder, in case you'd like to switch on the hotlink protection function only for some content and not for the entire website. Stopping it is just as fast - you will only have to mark the checkbox alongside the respective website and to click on the Delete button.
