Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
It shall not take more than several clicks to enable the hotlink security function we offer even if this is the 1st hosting account that you use, as all our shared hosting include a simple and user-friendly tool that will allow you to stop direct links to your content. The tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, so it features the same exact intuitive point-and-click interface. Once you log in to your account’s back office and navigate to the Hotlink Protection section, you will simply need to pick the domain or subdomain you want to protect from a drop-down list. If you would like to enable this service only for a particular website folder, you've got the option to do that. All sites with enabled hotlink protection shall appear inside this section and you can easily turn off the service by selecting the checkbox beside the given website and clicking on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account and you learn that another person is linking to your files without your approval, you can easily cut them off by activating the hotlink security function which we provide. While the regular technique of doing that is to set up an .htaccess file, we have got a special tool which can easily do this automatically and you'll simply have to choose the site in question and to choose whether our system should create the necessary file inside the primary folder or within a subfolder. The tool is a component of our custom Hepsia CP and provides exactly the same user-friendly interface, so you will be able to use it without complications even if you have never used any website hosting service before. You are able to disable the hotlink security feature for any website/folder with a mouse click through exactly the same section.
