It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not enabled by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately since we'll store several daily backups of the entire account.
