It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting packages, so you could protect your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so we will be able to bring it back to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you will be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option should be activated for each and every site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and secure all of your websites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
