It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting packages, so you could protect any of your websites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we always have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we can recover it to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use a specific script which accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your websites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be stopped.
