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 plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for various sites do not get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it easily since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use a certain script which accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to quickly restore it because of the several daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
