It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely 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 access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect any of your sites with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we will have several daily backups for the damaged one, so we can recover it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even when you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly since we will keep a couple of daily backup copies of the entire account.
