Hotlinking Protection in Hosting
It shall not take more than a couple of clicks to activate the hotlink protection feature which we offer even if this is the very first web hosting account that you use, since all of our Linux hosting service come with a simple and easy to work with tool that will permit you to prevent direct links to your content. The tool is a component of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel, so it features the very same intuitive point & click interface. As soon as you log in to your account’s back office and go to the Hotlink Protection section, you will simply need to choose the domain or subdomain that you'd like to secure from a drop-down list. If you wish to enable this function only for a certain Internet site folder, you've got the option to do that. All Internet sites with active hotlink protection will appear in this section and you will be able to deactivate the service by selecting the checkbox beside the given website and clicking on the Delete button.
Hotlinking Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you find out that another person has hotlinked any of your images, you should use the security tool we have developed and incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. When you activate this option, a server-generated image shall appear on the third-party website in place of your actual images. You will only need to go to the Hotlink Protection section within the CP and choose the domain or subdomain that your site uses from a handy drop-down menu - it's as easy as that. If needed, you will also have the option to activate the function only for a particular subfolder and not for the website altogether. Deactivating the feature is equally easy - get back to exactly the same section, check the box beside the given Internet site and then press the Delete button.
