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.
