Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can easily protect your content if you create an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but if you don't have previous experience, you should use our hotlink protection tool. The latter comes with all cloud hosting packages which we offer and can be accessed via the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection may be enabled in two simple steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the site in question, then pick if our system should set up the .htaccess file inside the main folder or inside a subfolder and you will be all set. You don't require any programming expertise or any experience with this sort of matters, because there will be nothing else to do. If you'd like to turn off the protection at some point, you could see all the websites which are protected in the exact same section of the CP with a Delete button beside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you find out that somebody has hotlinked any of your images, you can use the protection tool that we have developed and integrated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. Whenever you enable this function, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party Internet site instead of your actual images. You will only have to go to the Hotlink Protection section within the CP and pick the domain or subdomain which your Internet site uses from a convenient drop-down menu - it is as basic as that. If required, you will also have the option to switch on the function for a particular subfolder and not for the website as a whole. Deactivating the protection is just as simple - return to exactly the same section, check the box beside the specific website and then click on the Delete button.
