It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud website hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it very quickly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you might use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
