It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only 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 part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really easy. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host a couple of sites, you can isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each website and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to manage and shield all of your sites. In case that an Internet site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
