It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided 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 sites don't get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any of your sites gets hacked, we can almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be cut off.
