  • Protecting Web Space from External threats

    I wanted to ask is there any way that I can protect my webspace from threats or can I setup any rules or command and how do I protect my website/webspace from content ripping ?

    Certainly you can set the rules under your .htaccess file to protect your web-space.
    Certain host may not provide you with privileges to write .htaccess. How ever Webhosting UK supports .htaccess and allows you to modify with your custom rules.

    you can try following code under your .htaccess file.

    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Anarchie [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^ASPSeek [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^attach [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^autoemailspider [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Xaldon\ WebSpider [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Xenu [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Zeus.*Webster [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Zeus
    RewriteRule ^.* – [F,L]

    These are generalized rules, you can add custom rules if you know the attacker.
    Warm Regards,

      As far as I am aware there is no such thing in place to get rid of content theft. You can always keep an eye on the content that is being stolen and send an email to the culprit as to remove the content.

        You can always setup Google alerts or there are many plugins out there that help you top prevent your content from getting stolen. One such plugin is "WP Content Copy Protection" which helps from content theft.
