    A website on my server is using hotlink protection, and they website is constantly straining our servers. I know hotlink protection might not be the problem, but i'm curious if its a possibility or has been known to?

    I'm asking because i've read about other people having server overload problems from using hotlink protection.

    Hotlink protection is just a simple regex with mod_rewrite. I don't think that could be your problem unless something is setup wrong.
