It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some website where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host several different websites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other in order to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to take care of and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
