Hello,

I have found cloned / scraped sites that are using my pictures from my webshop. The first thing I want to do is to add code in my htaccess fils to avoid hotlinking of images. I tried to add some code that I googled but with no success. It ended up with 500 server error so the code was placed in wrong part of my htaccess.

So my question is; where in the htaccess file should the hotlinking code be placed? I would like to see some examples if someone have that.

Many thanks!

You may be able to turn this on from cPanel and that should add the code to .htaccess for you.

Thanks all for your answers.

I will check the above link. I tried to add some hotlink code but after some tests I stopped. I have asked my host. They are not using cPanel, only their own backend system.

Try this

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?yourdomain\.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg|png)$ /feed/ [R=302,L]
replace yourdomain - with your website domain name

This version will allow search engines specified

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?yourdomain.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?google.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?bing.com [NC]
RewriteRule \.(jpg|png|gif|)$ - [NC,R,L]
And this

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?yourdomainname.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg|png)$ - [F]
At leat 1 of these should work for you

Post your entire htaccess file here so we can see it, maybe can give you more advice if your host does not manage to help you

Dear all,

Time to wake up this post again after a while... My htaccess-file looks as below. Note that I just hided two ip addresses in this post that I tried to block for a while ago. Not sure if that worked.

Any tips regarding first of all block of hotlinking for pictures I will be happy to have. Also tips for avoid scraping if possible. The other answer above in a previous post wrote some interesting code snippets but I have lack of knowledge where to add them correctly.

This is your htaccess with hotlink blocking added
You can probably forget scraping.
