It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all other folders is very simple. If any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host a couple of websites, you can easily separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to manage and shield all of your sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged site in no time as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
