Use this generator to create a .htaccess file for hotlink protection of your images and pictures. Hotlink protection can save you lots of bandwidth by preventing other sites from displaying your images.

After you have created a .htaccess for hotlink protection, you can use the tool to test hotlink protection and make sure that you prevent hotlink.

⚠️ – We’ve take down this page for the time being as we’ve been having issues with bots maxing out our servers. For the time being please see our Htpasswd Generator.  Apologies on any inconvenience this may have caused our readers. Hoping to have the tools back up in action once we can stop these bots as well as switch to our new VPS. ⚠️

 

If you’re looking for additional information on htaccess please see our htaccess guide containing over 25 individual tutorials.
