It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this 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 in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud web hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, so we can recover it to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default simply because you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future attacks.
