Bandwith Theft....


Recommended Posts

I've been looking at my awstats, and noticing a bunch of sites have been gaining anywhere from 10-100 of mb's of my bandwith daily...I have been able to find out the domain where they are coming from in the awstats. How can I block their domain from gaining access?..

They are probably hotlinking images hosted under your account. You should turn on hotlinking protection (you can do it in cPanel).



I already have it enabled, I found out where some of the problems are coming from. but there is still some bandwidth issuses going on...

Im mean, look at those numbers.....Thats outrageous........But I actually think I found the culprit....Where a site was leaching off off the music that was on the site. I looked at the numbers from the past few days, and compared them to today's. There was a huge difference. Also, I removed the files, that the actual bandwidth was coming from...
