It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that 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, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with only a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default because you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you could secure all other sites by separating them from each other. It is a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites 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 site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future intrusions.
