Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
Because our shared plans include a simple and practical hotlink protection tool, you shall be able to shield your content from displaying on third-party websites with literally only a couple of mouse clicks, even if you do not have much experience with such matters. The tool comes with the Hepsia hosting CP and as soon as you open it, you will just need to choose the domain or subdomain which you want to protect. Optionally, you could also select if the hotlink protection will be enabled for the default domain root folder or just for a subfolder. You will not have to do anything else, due to the fact that our system will create an .htaccess file automatically within the preferred location and shall add the necessary code in it. All sites with enabled hotlink protection will be listed inside the same section, so you can disable this service for any of them with a mouse click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you don't want others to use your images on their Internet sites without your permission, you can easily switch on the hotlink security function, that's available with all semi-dedicated server packages. As an alternative to creating an .htaccess file manually in the Internet site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the conventional approach to deny direct linking to files, you can use an exceptionally simple tool, which we've integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. By using it, you will only have to pick the website that has to be secured and our system shall do the rest. Furthermore, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file will be set up straight in the root folder or within a subfolder, if you'd like to enable the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the entire website. Stopping it is just as easy - you'll only have to mark the checkbox beside the respective website and to click on the Delete button.
