Hotlinking Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can easily protect your content if you generate an .htaccess file in the website’s root folder, but just in case you don't have previous experience, you need to use our hotlink protection tool. The latter comes with all shared website hosting packages we offer and can be accessed using the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection could be enabled in 2 easy steps - select the domain or subdomain for the website in question, then choose if our system should set up the .htaccess file inside the main folder or in a subfolder and you shall be ready. You do not need any coding capabilities or any experience with such matters, since there shall be nothing else to do. If you would like to disable the protection at some time, you could see all the websites which are protected within the exact same section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each one of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you notice that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you should use the security tool that we have created and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. When you switch on this option, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party website instead of your real images. You will only have to visit the Hotlink Protection section within the CP and select the domain or subdomain that your Internet site uses from a convenient drop-down menu - it's as basic as that. If necessary, you shall also have the option to activate the feature for a particular subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the function is equally easy - return to the very same section, check the box beside the particular site and then click on the Delete button.
