Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
It will not require more than several mouse clicks to activate the hotlink protection function which we offer you even if this is the very first hosting account you use, as all our shared hosting feature a quite simple and user-friendly tool that will allow you to stop direct links to your content. The tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, so it features the very same intuitive point-and-click interface. After you log in to your account’s back office and visit the Hotlink Protection section, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain that you would like to secure from a drop-down list. If you'd like to activate this feature only for a certain Internet site folder, you will have the option to do that. All websites with enabled hotlink protection will appear in this section and you can turn off the service by selecting the checkbox alongside the given Internet site and clicking on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you do not want other people to use your images on their sites without your authorization, you can easily switch on the hotlink security function, that's available with all semi-dedicated server plans. Instead of generating an .htaccess file manually in the site folder and writing some code in it, which is the traditional way to deny direct linking to files, you can use a very simple tool, that we've included in the Hepsia Control Panel. By using it, you will only have to choose the Internet site which has to be secured and our system will do the rest. Additionally, you can determine if the .htaccess file should be created directly in the root folder or in a subfolder, in case you would like to activate the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the whole site. Deactivating it is just as effortless - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the particular website and to click on the Delete button.
