It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with just a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some website where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host several sites, you can easily isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to maintain and protect all your websites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected site in no time since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
