It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the website hosting packages that we provide and you can activate it with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an application which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you could protect all other websites by separating them from one another. This is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future intrusions.
