It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not 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 following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the web hosting plans that we offer and you can enable it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add a further level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host multiple Internet sites, you can isolate them from one another to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each and every website and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to control and protect your sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged website in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
