What is hotlinking?
Bandwith theft. Hotlinking refers to the practice of linking to images on a server/website other than your own. Bandwidth is the amount of information traffic that has been allotted to a webmaster. For example, if your bandwidth per month is 10MB, it means that people can view your webpages (and all its content) up to 10MB. By hotlinking, you are essentially stealing from the webmaster who is paying money for said bandwidth. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, when you use up all the bandwidth for the website, it means that other people and yourself might not be able to access all the images/content on the website.
Please do not hotlink to anything on this or any other site.Posted by Xena of Amphipolis
