Hotlinking Protection in Shared Web Hosting
It won't take more than a number of mouse clicks to enable the hotlink protection feature that we offer even if this is the first website hosting account that you use, since all our shared web hosting services come with a quite simple and easy-to-use tool that will allow you to prevent direct links to your content. The tool is a component of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel, so it offers the exact same intuitive point-and-click interface. After you log in to your account’s back office and navigate to the Hotlink Protection section, you'll simply need to pick the domain or subdomain you want to protect from a drop-down list. If you wish to activate this feature only for a certain site folder, you've got the option to do that. All websites with active hotlink protection shall appear in this section and you can easily turn off the service by selecting the checkbox next to the given Internet site and pressing the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you find out that somebody has hotlinked any of your images, you should use the security tool that we have developed and included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. When you switch on this function, a server-generated image will appear on the third-party website instead of your real images. You will only need to navigate to the Hotlink Protection section inside the Control Panel and pick the domain or subdomain which your Internet site uses from a handy drop-down menu - it is as basic as that. If necessary, you shall also have the option to activate the function for a particular subfolder and not for the website as a whole. Deactivating the feature is just as simple - get back to the same section, check the box beside the specific Internet site and then click on the Delete button.
