It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we always have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so we can recover it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default because you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can easily protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. It is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
