What Does It Mean to Optimise Images?
Large images slow down your web pages which creates a less than optimal user experience. Optimising images is the process of decreasing their file size, which in turn speeds up the load time of the page and also reduces the bandwidth requirement to deliver the content across to the visitors.
What Does Hotlink protection do?
Hotlink protection is a security feature in cPanel designed to reduce bandwidth consumption. It prevents third-party websites from directly linking to your content (for example, pulling in, images hosted on your server for display on their own web pages).
