    First, if I put the hidden tag <input type=hidden name=rurl value="<cpanel Mime="linkrurl()">">
    and I try to activate the hotlink and I insert http://www.domain.com/error.htm in Url to Redirect to:
    the server shows this error: The requested URL /error.htm was not found on this server when I try to get
    http://www.domain.com/image.gif or http://www.domain.com/image2.gif WHY??????????????

    But if I change this tag in Cpanel code to <input type=hidden name=rurl value="http://www.domain.com/error.htm">
    and I activate Hotlink and I try to get http://www.domain.com/image.gif the server shows http://www.domain.com/error.htm
    correctly. WHY??????????????


    www.domain.com is not the same as www.domain.com/ when it comes to hotlink protection, there are some code
    to repair this http://(www\.)?yourdomain.com(/)? in .htaccess, but with the actual system in cpanel this is not
    possible. With the problem of slash at the end of domain, my customers can not activate the Hot Link because
    they can´t access to domain.com.

    The Url to Redirect to option does not work
    It is not possible to access to domain.com

    Do you think that this tool is really serious in Cpanel??


    Thanks!
