Hi! Been loking for the howto on this but I haven’t been able to find anything useful, so I post my question here hoping to find help. Thanks in advance!
I have a Wordpress site with a price list in PDF. I update that PDF document weekly, with the SAME NAME so it overwrites the old PDF. That way I don’t need to change the link in my site for clients to get the updated document.
My site is small, not much traffic. The major bandwidth consumption is from local clients getting my PDF pricelist (well I guess so). However the bandwidth is EXCESSIVE; my site has an average daily consumption of 150MB…, so every month, with about 10 days to go until the end of the month, my bandwidth reaches its 4GB limit and my website goes offline.
My PDF is just 190KB so there is no reason to think this is the guilty guy. For this reason I’m afraid my PDF pricelist is being hotlinked from other websites. In fact I checked it out in Google Images and it is hotlinked from a couple of webpages (perhaps more). And here comes my question:
HOW DO I PROTECT THAT SPECIFIC PDF DOCUMENT FROM BEING HOTLINKED?
