    How to enable/disable the Hotlink Protection in cPanel?

    You can enable/disable the Hotlink Protection from the cPanel account.

    You can enable / disable the Hotlink Protection by following the steps:
    1. Login to cPanel and click HotLink Protection.
    2. Make sure the domain name you wish to protect is in the box called "URLs to allow access".
    3. In the box called "Block direct access for these extensions", provide the extensions for which you would like to block.
    4. We suggest you check the box for "Allow direct requests".
    5. Skip the "Redirect request to this URL" box and hit Submit.
