Hotlinking Protection in Web Hosting
You can easily shield your content if you create an .htaccess file within the website’s root folder, but in case you don't have previous experience, you should use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is supplied with all web hosting plans that we offer and could be accessed from the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection may be enabled in 2 basic steps - select the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then choose if our system should set up the .htaccess file in the main folder or within a subfolder and you will be ready. You don't require any computer programming skills or any experience with this kind of matters, because there shall be nothing else to do. If you wish to disable the protection eventually, you can see all of the sites which are protected inside the exact same section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you don't want others to use your images on their websites without your authorization, you could easily activate the hotlink security feature, that is provided with all semi-dedicated server package deals. Rather than setting up an .htaccess file manually in the Internet site folder and writing some code in it, which is the common approach to deny direct linking to files, you can use a really simple tool, that we have incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel. From it, you'll simply have to choose the Internet site that needs to be protected and our system will do the rest. Additionally, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file will be created straight inside the root folder or inside a subfolder, when you want to switch on the hotlink security function only for some content and not for the entire Internet site. Disabling it is just as easy - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the specific website and to click on the Delete button.
