Test Image Hotlinking Protection




(Don't forget to clear your browser cache to prevent your image from loading from the browser's cache instead of the remote url you are testing.)


After entering your URL, if you do not see your image load, your file cannot be hotlinked. If you see the image display on this page, it's time to use an htaccess file to stop hotlinking of your site files and prevent others from using your bandwidth. If you are having problems with your site .htaccess file or server settings, contact your web host provider for additional assistance.
