Hotlinking Protection in Shared Hosting
You can easily shield your content if you create an .htaccess file within the website’s root folder, but in case you don't have previous experience, you could use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is supplied with all shared hosting package deals we offer and can be accessed from the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection may be activated in two simple steps - pick the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then pick if our system should create the .htaccess file inside the main folder or inside a subfolder and you'll be all set. You do not need any programming skills or any experience with this kind of matters, since there will be nothing else to do. If you wish to turn off the protection at some point, you can see all the sites that are protected inside the exact same section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want other individuals to use your images on their websites without your authorization, you can easily enable the hotlink protection function, that's offered with all semi-dedicated server plans. As opposed to creating an .htaccess file manually in the site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the traditional approach to deny direct linking to files, you could use an incredibly simple tool, that we have included in the Hepsia CP. With it, you'll simply need to choose the Internet site which should be protected and our system shall do the rest. Optionally, you can determine whether the .htaccess file should be created straight inside the root folder or within a subfolder, in case you want to enable the hotlink security feature just for some content and not for the whole website. Deactivating it is just as fast - you'll simply have to mark the checkbox beside the particular site and to click on the Delete button.
