Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
There's a simple way of preventing the hotlinking of your images through an .htaccess file within the website’s root directory, but if you are not very tech-savvy, we also give you a very helpful tool that will permit you to enable the protection with several mouse clicks and without typing any code. The tool could be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux cloud hosting packages and the only two things that you'll have to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and if the protection should be enabled for the main website folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you will not need to do anything else by hand on your end. If you wish to disable the hotlink protection option at some point, you will just have to come back to exactly the same section, to mark the checkbox next to it and to press the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide you with an uncomplicated solution to protect your whole content and even if you aren't quite tech-savvy, you can take full advantage of it with a couple of clicks. The usual approach to turn on server-side hotlink security is to set up an .htaccess file and to add a couple of directives within it. With the tool which you'll find within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts, you'll only have to select the site that you would like to protect and our system shall create the .htaccess file for you, including all of the essential content in it. You can also use this function for just one folder rather than the entire site - you just need to specify where the .htaccess file has to be created. If you no longer require the hotlink security to be switched on, you may deactivate it with one mouse click via the same exact section of your Control Panel.
