Hotlinking Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can easily protect your content if you generate an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but in case that you don't have previous experience, you need to use our hotlink protection tool. The latter comes with all shared web hosting packages that we offer and can be accessed using the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection can be turned on in 2 basic steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the site in question, then pick if our system should create the .htaccess file inside the main folder or in a subfolder and you'll be all set. You do not need any computer programming capabilities or any experience with this kind of matters, as there shall be nothing else to do. If you wish to disable the protection eventually, you will be able to see all of the Internet sites that are protected in the same section of the Control Panel with a Delete button next to each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you do not want other people to use your images on their Internet sites without your authorization, you can easily switch on the hotlink security feature, which is provided with all semi-dedicated server package deals. As an alternative to setting up an .htaccess file yourself inside the website folder and writing some code inside it, which is the traditional method to deny direct linking to files, you can use an exceptionally simple tool, which we've included in the Hepsia Control Panel. By using it, you'll only need to choose the website which has to be protected and our system will do the rest. Also, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file will be created directly within the root folder or in a subfolder, if you want to activate the hotlink security feature just for some content and not for the whole Internet site. Disabling it is just as fast - you will simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the particular site and to click on the Delete button.
