Hotlinking Protection in Shared Website Hosting
It will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to switch on the hotlink security feature that we offer even if this is the very first website hosting account you use, as all our Linux shared website hosting include a simple and easy-to-use tool that will permit you to stop direct links to your content. The tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, so it has the exact same easy-to-use point-and-click interface. After you log in to your account’s back office and navigate to the Hotlink Protection section, you'll only have to select the domain or subdomain that you want to protect from a drop-down list. If you wish to enable this function only for a certain website folder, you will have the option to do that. All sites with enabled hotlink protection will appear in this section and you will be able to disable the service by selecting the checkbox next to the given site and pressing 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 permission, you will be able to easily cut them off by enabling the hotlink security feature which we provide. While the standard technique of doing this is to set up an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool that can perform this automatically and you will only have to select the site in question and to determine whether our system should generate the necessary file within the main folder or inside a subfolder. The tool is an element of our custom made Hepsia CP and has the exact same user-friendly interface, so you'll be able to use it without any problems even in case you have never used any web hosting service before. You may disable the hotlink security function for any website/folder with a click through exactly the same section.
