How to enable hotlink protection using .htaccess?

You can use the .htaccess file to quickly enable hotlink protection for your website.

First, set the folder in which the .htaccess file will be created, using the .htaccess location form at the top of the page. A click in the form field will open a pop-up window, from where you can browse to the desired website folder.

Then, go to the other options menu. In there, simply mark the Enable Hotlink Protection checkbox. That’s everything.

Once you are done, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the “Generate” button. The newly created .htaccess file will take effect in up to 15 minutes.
