It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several Internet sites, you can isolate them from one another to keep them safe. This option should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to manage and protect your websites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
