Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
As our Linux shared hosting provide a simple and handy hotlink protection tool, you will be able to protect your content from showing on third-party websites with literally no more than 2 mouse clicks, even if you don't have much experience with this sort of matters. The tool is available in the Hepsia hosting CP and as soon as you open it, you will just have to choose the domain or subdomain which you want to protect. Furthermore, you can also pick if the hotlink protection will be enabled for the default domain root folder or exclusively for a subfolder. You'll not have to do anything else, due to the fact that our system shall create an .htaccess file automatically within the preferred location and will add the needed code in it. All sites with active hotlink protection will be listed inside the very same section, so you could disable this service for each of them with just a click.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you do not want other people to use your images on their sites without your consent, you could easily enable the hotlink protection feature, that's supplied with all semi-dedicated server packages. Rather than generating an .htaccess file manually in the site folder and writing some code in it, which is the common method to deny direct linking to files, you can use a very simple tool, which we've incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel. From it, you will only need to choose the site that needs to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Furthermore, you can decide if the .htaccess file should be set up straight inside the root folder or within a subfolder, when you want to enable the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the whole website. Disabling it is just as simple - you'll only have to mark the checkbox beside the particular Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
