It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits 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 won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can select which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an app that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you will be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential intrusions.
