Well that was quick and easy -- ipowerweb says:

Step 1:
Note: NOT COMPATIBLE WITH FRONTPAGE WEBSITES. Disabling Hotlinking will prevent others from linking to your files. Log into vDeck and click Settings.
Step 2:
Click on Hot Linking.

Step 3:
Click the link that reads (click here) to disable hotlinking.

Step 4:
Hotlinking will be scheduled to be disabled within 24 hours.



For a screenshot walkthrough of these settings, please visit www.ipwhelp.com, click vDeck, then choose Settings, click Hotlinking, and click Disabling HotLinking.


I used FrontPage for my web pages. That bites! Anyone have any work-arounds?

Thanks!

It looks like your host runs Plesk. You should look for support on a Plesk support site. cPanel is not compatible with Plesk.

ipowerweb is wrong. This may be the case if you use a script to add hotlink protection which wipes out the FP part of .htaccess, but if you add the code manually, FP and leech protection work fine. I've done it many times for clients. And I think CPanel fixed their hotlink script to not wipe out FP a while ago. Too bad about Plesk. :)
