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 plug-ins that 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 control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just 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 see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some website where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you could activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately since we'll keep a couple of daily backups of the whole account.
