It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really easy. Unlike some other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, so we can bring it back to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host a couple of websites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to control and secure all of your sites. In case that a site within your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged Internet site in no time because we will have multiple backups of your content.
