Hotlinking Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Since our shared web hosting include a simple and practical hotlink protection tool, you will be able to defend your content from showing on third-party Internet sites with literally just 2 clicks, even if you do not have very much experience with such matters. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP and when you open it, you will just have to choose the domain or subdomain which you want to protect. Additionally, you may also select if the hotlink protection will be active for the default domain root folder or just for a subfolder. You shall not have to do anything else, because our system shall create an .htaccess file automatically inside the needed location and shall add the necessary code within it. All Internet websites with active hotlink protection will be listed within the very same section, so you can disable this service for any of them with just a mouse click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you discover that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you can use the protection tool we've developed and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. When you activate this feature, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party website as a substitute for your actual images. You will only have to navigate to the Hotlink Protection section inside the CP and pick the domain or subdomain your website uses from a convenient drop-down menu - it's as elementary as that. If required, you will also have the option to enable the feature only for a specific subfolder and not for the website as a whole. Deactivating the function is just as effortless - get back to the very same section, check the box beside the particular website and then press the Delete button.
