Hotlinking Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can easily secure your content if you generate an .htaccess file within the website’s root folder, but just in case you do not have previous experience, you could use our hotlink protection tool. The latter is provided with all cloud hosting plans we offer and could be accessed using the in-house built Hepsia CP. The protection could be activated in 2 basic steps - choose the domain or subdomain for the site in question, then choose if our system should create the .htaccess file in the primary folder or in a subfolder and you shall be all set. You do not need any programming skills or any experience with this sort of matters, due to the fact that there will be nothing else to do. If you wish to disable the protection at some time, you could see all the Internet sites which are protected within the very same section of the CP with a Delete button alongside each one of them.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you do not want others to use your images on their sites without your consent, you can easily enable the hotlink protection function, which is offered with all semi-dedicated server plans. Rather than setting up an .htaccess file manually inside the Internet site folder and writing some code in it, which is the traditional approach to deny direct linking to files, you can use a very simple tool, that we have incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel. With it, you will only have to pick the site that should be secured and our system shall do the rest. Moreover, you can choose if the .htaccess file will be set up straight within the root folder or in a subfolder, if you would like to enable the hotlink security feature only for some content and not for the entire website. Stopping it is just as easy - you'll only have to mark the checkbox next to the specific Internet site and to click on the Delete button.
