Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can easily protect your content if you set up an .htaccess file in the website’s root folder, but just in case you don't have previous experience, you could use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is supplied with all cloud hosting package deals we offer and can be accessed through the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection can be turned on in 2 easy steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then pick if our system should create the .htaccess file within the primary folder or within a subfolder and you shall be ready. You do not need any programming skills or any experience with this sort of matters, because there shall be nothing else to do. If you wish to turn off the protection at some point, you will be able to see all the sites which are protected within the same section of the CP with a Delete button beside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you don't want other people to use your images on their sites without your consent, you can easily switch on the hotlink protection feature, that is supplied with all semi-dedicated server packages. Instead of generating an .htaccess file manually within the site folder and writing some code in it, which is the conventional method to deny direct linking to files, you may use a very simple tool, which we've integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. From it, you will only need to pick the website which needs to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Furthermore, you can make a decision whether the .htaccess file will be set up straight in the root folder or inside a subfolder, in case you'd like to enable the hotlink protection function just for some content and not for the whole site. Stopping it is just as easy - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the respective Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
