It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively 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 within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some website where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you will be able to separate them from one another and keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each and every Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much simpler to maintain and shield all of your websites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged website very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
