Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can easily secure your content if you create an .htaccess file inside the website’s root folder, but in case you do not have previous experience, you can use our hotlink protection tool. The latter comes with all cloud web hosting package deals we offer and can be accessed through the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The protection may be activated in 2 basic steps - select the domain or subdomain for the Internet site in question, then pick if our system should set up the .htaccess file in the primary folder or in a subfolder and you'll be ready. You do not need any programming expertise or any experience with this sort of matters, due to the fact that there shall be nothing else to do. If you wish to disable the protection at some time, you will be able to see all the websites that are protected inside the very same section of the Control Panel with a Delete button alongside 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 permission, you could easily activate the hotlink protection function, that is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans. As opposed to setting up an .htaccess file yourself inside the Internet site folder and writing some code inside it, which is the standard way to deny direct linking to files, you can use a very simple tool, which we have integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel. With it, you will simply need to choose the website that has to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Optionally, you can decide if the .htaccess file will be set up straight inside the root folder or in a subfolder, in case you'd like to activate the hotlink protection feature just for some content and not for the whole site. Disabling it is just as easy - you will simply need to mark the checkbox alongside the respective Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
