Hotlinking Protection - Urgent!!

    Hi!

    im looking for two kind of hotlink protection codes for my GIF blog ( http://gifsec.com/ )
    Its getting tons of reddit shares and completely kills my servers bandwidth. Only the last 24 reddit used over 1TB bandwidth on 2 images.

    1: Is it possible to do a hotlink protection so that ONLY one specific domain cannot hotlink my images? Like reddit.com

    i still want google and other smaller blogs to hotlink my images, but not the big ones since im using GIF images only and the big sites drain my bandwidth.


    2: I would like to have a script for hotlinking protection for images on all blogs and pages EXCEPT search engines like google (all google urls) and bing etc. i still want search engines to access my images

    i also would like to have an option to display a image when someone hotlinks like "hotlinkprotected.jpg"

    Another suggestion would of course also be to get a decent server/host-package. Btw, even with Reddit-shares, how the f*ck do you reach 1TB b/w on a GIF-image (or serveral) - it should be a few kBytes each.
