It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different websites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is really easy. If any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a certain script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we can promptly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
