It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but securing all the other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected site gets hacked for some 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 using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several websites, you can isolate them from one another and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected site in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
