It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you need to 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 Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was without delay since we'll have a few daily backup copies of the entire account.
