Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
There's a simple way of avoiding the hotlinking of your images via an .htaccess file in the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we furthermore give you a very helpful tool that will permit you to activate the protection with several mouse clicks and without typing any code. The tool could be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our Linux shared hosting service and the only two things that you will need to select are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and whether the protection needs to be enabled for the main site folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you shall not need to do anything else personally on your end. If you decide to disable the hotlink protection option at one point, you will only have to come back to exactly the same section, to mark the checkbox beside it and to click on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide you with an effective solution to protect your entire content and even if you aren't really tech-savvy, you can take full advantage of it with a couple of clicks. The standard way for you to enable server-side hotlink security is to generate an .htaccess file and to add a couple of directives inside it. With the tool which you will find within the Hepsia CP, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, you'll only have to choose the site that you need to secure and our system will create the .htaccess file for you, adding all of the required content within it. You could also use this function for just one folder instead of the entire website - you just have to specify where the .htaccess file needs to be created. If you no longer want the hotlink protection to be switched on, you may disable it with just one mouse click through the exact same section of your CP.
