Image hotlinking refers to the practice of displaying an image inside the page of a website by linking to an image hosted on another website, so that it appears to be part of the linking website.

Like many other website owners, you may face situations when other webmasters will try to directly link to your images from their pages without your permission.
Image Hotlinking Tracker
This program tracks the hotlinked image requests and keeps the records so that you could analyze them:
- local address of the hotlinked image
- date and time of the request
- URL address of the remote webpage that requested the image
Add your rules and get control over the way your hotlinked images will be shown on remote websites.
Watermark your hotlinked images with your company logo, your website URL, your company name or a copyright notice. This is an easy and quick method of helping people to identify your images on web and visit your website.
Preventing image hotlinking can reduce bandwidth consumption and minimize costs associated with your website hosting account.
