Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
It will not require more than a few mouse clicks to switch on the hotlink security function we provide even if this is the very first web hosting account you use, due to the fact that all our cloud hosting include a very simple and user-friendly tool that will enable you to stop direct links to your content. The tool is part of our advanced Hepsia CP, so it provides the same exact intuitive point & click interface. After you log in to your account’s back office and visit the Hotlink Protection section, you'll simply have to select the domain or subdomain you want to protect from a drop-down list. If you would like to switch on this function only for a specific Internet site folder, you've got the option to do that. All Internet sites with enabled hotlink protection shall appear within this section and you can disable the service by selecting the checkbox next to the given website and pressing the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want other people to use your images on their websites without your authorization, you could easily activate the hotlink security function, which is offered with all semi-dedicated server plans. As opposed to creating an .htaccess file by hand in the site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the standard approach to deny direct linking to files, you may use an exceedingly simple tool, which we've included in the Hepsia Control Panel. From it, you will only need to choose the site which needs to be secured and our system shall do the rest. Also, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file needs to be set up directly inside the root folder or in a subfolder, when you'd like to switch on the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the whole Internet site. Stopping it is just as easy - you'll only need to mark the checkbox alongside the specific Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
