It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you could protect each of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really simple. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we can recover it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You could activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we'll keep a couple of daily backups of the entire account.
