It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because 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 situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host several different sites, you can isolate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for each and every website and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and secure all your websites. In case that a website in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the damaged Internet site in no time since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
