It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we will be able to recover it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was very quickly because we will keep several daily backup copies of your account.
