It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites inside a shared website hosting
account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different websites do not get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all of the other folders is very easy. If any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it easily because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so in case you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each and every website and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to control and protect all your websites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
