The tool may be accessed from the Hepsia CP, included with all our website hosting and the only 2 things that you'll need to pick are a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu and if the protection should be activated for the main Internet site folder or for some subfolder. Our system will do the rest, so you won't need to do anything else manually on your end. If you choose to deactivate the hotlink protection option eventually, you'll only have to go back to the exact same section, to mark the checkbox next to it and to click on the Delete button.

If you don't want other individuals to use your images on their Internet sites without your consent, you may easily enable the hotlink security function, that is offered with all semi-dedicated server package deals.

By using it, you will simply have to pick the site that needs to be protected and our system shall do the rest. Also, you can make a decision if the .htaccess file needs to be set up straight in the root folder or inside a subfolder, when you would like to activate the hotlink security function only for some content and not for the whole website. Deactivating it is just as effortless - you will only have to mark the checkbox alongside the particular site and to click on the Delete button.
