Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
You can easily shield your content if you generate an .htaccess file within the website’s root folder, but in case you do not have previous experience, you need to use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is included with all shared hosting plans which we offer and can be accessed through the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection can be turned on in two simple steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then pick if our system should set up the .htaccess file within the primary folder or in a subfolder and you'll be all set. You do not need any computer programming skills or any experience with this kind of matters, as there shall be nothing else to do. If you wish to disable the protection at some point, you will be able to see all of the Internet sites that are protected inside the exact same section of the Control Panel with a Delete button beside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you don't want others to use your images on their Internet sites without your approval, you could easily enable the hotlink security feature, that's supplied with all semi-dedicated server plans. As an alternative to setting up an .htaccess file manually in the Internet site 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 integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. By using it, you will simply have to pick the Internet site which has to be protected and our system will do the rest. Moreover, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file should be created straight in the root folder or in a subfolder, in case you would like to enable the hotlink protection function only for some content and not for the entire website. Deactivating it is just as easy - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox alongside the respective site and to click on the Delete button.
