Hotlinking Protection in Shared Website Hosting
There's a way to avoid the hotlinking of your images by using an .htaccess file inside the website’s root directory, but if you aren't very tech-savvy, we also provide a very user-friendly tool that shall permit you to activate the protection with a couple of clicks and without typing any code. The tool can be accessed through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux shared website hosting service and the only two things that you will need to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection must be activated for the main site folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you won't have to do anything else personally on your end. If you choose to turn off the hotlink protection option at one point, you will only have to revisit exactly the same section, to mark the checkbox beside it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer a simple solution to shield your entire content and even if you aren't really tech-savvy, you can take advantage of it with just a few mouse clicks. The common way for you to enable server-side hotlink security is to generate an .htaccess file and to add a few directives inside it. With the tool that you will find inside the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all semi-dedicated server accounts, you will only need to select the Internet site that you would like to secure and our system will set up the .htaccess file for you, including all the needed content inside it. You can even use this function for just one folder as opposed to the whole website - you just have to specify where the .htaccess file has to be set up. If you no longer want the hotlink security to be enabled, you may deactivate it with a single click through the very same section of your CP.
