It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting packages, so you can protect each of your websites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to avoid interfering with 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 websites is very easy. Unlike other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we'll have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to recover it to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a specific script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your sites is hacked, we can promptly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be stopped.
