Hotlinking is a largely accepted Internet phrase for linking to another website’s images. Quite simply, if you create an Internet site, somebody else may want to use the images that you have and rather than downloading them from your website and then uploading them to their own website, they can simply put links to your website. In this way, whenever a visitor opens their Internet site, the images will be loaded from your account, as a result stealing from your own monthly traffic quota, along with the copyright problems which can appear or that someone could be trying to trick people into believing that they're in fact on your Internet site. In rare situations, documents and other types of files can also be linked in the exact same way. To stop this from happening and to avoid this sort of situations, you could permit hotlink protection for your Internet site.

Hotlinking Protection in Website Hosting

Due to the fact that our website hosting plans provide a simple and practical hotlink protection tool, you will be able to shield your content from displaying on third-party Internet sites with literally only a couple of clicks, even if you do not have much experience with such matters. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP and as soon as you open it, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain you want to protect. Additionally, you can also choose if the hotlink protection will be active for the default domain root folder or only for a subfolder. You won't have to do anything else, because our system will create an .htaccess file automatically within the needed location and shall include the needed code in it. All Internet websites with enabled hotlink protection will be listed inside the same section, so that you can disable this service for any of them with a click.
