It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires accessibility to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so we can quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default as you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can easily protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is a piece of cake because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
