Knowledge Base:  Hosting - Site Management System cPanel:  Hotlink protection - Overview
Hotlink protection 
Hotlink protection prevents other websites from directly linking to files (as 
specified below) on your website. Other sites will still be able to link to any file type 
that you don't specify below (ie. html files). You can use hotlink protection to keep 
other sites from linking to your images, videos, and other files. If another site links 
directly to your images or other files, they will be using your bandwidth to display 
those files rather than theirs. 

To access Hotlink Protection, click on the icon as shown, below, in the Security 
section of the main 
screen of your cPanel interface.
