HotLink Protection

HotLink Protection prevents other websites from directly linking to files (as specified below) on a website. Other sites will still be able to link to any file type that a website owner doesn’t specify (i.e., HTML files). An example of hotlinking would be using an <img> tag to display an image from a site somewhere else on the Web. The end result is that the other site is stealing bandwidth. The interface does allow a website owner to list sites from which they wish to allow direct links.
