How Do I Stop Hotlinking and Bandwidth Theft?

Filed under: dev — michaelangela @ 2:37 pm

For reference

Stop Hotlinking with htaccess. Test your Image Hotlink Protection with our Hotlink Checker from altlab.com.

You can stop others from hotlinking your site’s files by placing a file called .htaccess in your Apache site root (main) directory. The period before the name means the file is hidden, so you may want to edit your file as htaccess.txt, upload it to your server, then rename the txt file to .htaccess in your directory. Contact your web host on how to access your directories and configure your .htaccess file.
