It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared website hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is a lot easier. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use some script that requires accessibility to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long because we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other sites by separating them from one another. This is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential intrusions.
