It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively 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 in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to keep your websites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script which needs accessibility to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long as we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we could promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you might use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you'll be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. This is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
