    Hi,

    I am just curious to ask, is there any update or ability within /cpanel, to (exactly like Hotlink protection) protect, not a file, but a Hotlinked folder? (Eg: http://www.pmech.net/MyDownloads/)

    I have been having a lot of troubles with forum users directly linking to my many folders, and it is wasting my bandwidth, and making my paying advertisers displeased that the majority of site viewers are bypassing the index and main pages, where they would normally see these ads

    Is there any way to protect a direct link to my Folders, and have it redirected to a different link, provided by me?

    Thanks

    PM

    Erm Hotlink protection will do this for you, just make sure you select in cpanel for your downloads folder not to give a list of files
