It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we'll have several daily backups for the infected one, so that we can recover it to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was right away because we'll have several daily backup copies of your entire account.
