Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
Because our shared plans come with a simple and convenient hotlink protection tool, you shall be able to defend your content from showing on third-party websites with literally just 2 mouse clicks, even if you don't have very much experience with such matters. The tool is available in the Hepsia hosting CP and when you open it, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain that you'd like to protect. In addition, you could also select if the hotlink protection will be enabled for the default domain root folder or just for a subfolder. You shall not have to do anything else, due to the fact that our system shall create an .htaccess file automatically in the desired location and will include the required code in it. All Internet websites with enabled hotlink protection shall be listed in the exact same section, so that you can disable this service for any of them with just a click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you discover that somebody has hotlinked any of your images, you may use the protection tool which we have created and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. When you switch on this option, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party Internet site rather than your real images. You'll only have to navigate to the Hotlink Protection section inside the CP and pick the domain or subdomain which your site uses from a handy drop-down menu - it's as simple as that. When necessary, you'll also have the option to switch on the feature for a specific subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the function is just as easy - return to exactly the same section, check the box alongside the particular Internet site and then click on the Delete button.
