It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not 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 websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't replace 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 limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting plans that we offer and you can turn it on with just a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You can choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you could protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
