It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're much easier 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 difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a shared web hosting
account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for various websites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case a secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it quickly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
solutions come with JailHost included by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites since it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be stopped.
