In the webmaster community, “hot linking” is a curse phrase. Also known as “bandwidth stealing” by the angry site owner, it refers to linking directly to non-html objects not on one own’s server, such as images, .js files etc. The victim’s server in this case is robbed of bandwidth (and in turn money) as the violator enjoys showing content without having to pay for its deliverance. The most common practice of hot linking pertains to another site’s images.
