It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just 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, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really easy. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we always have several daily backups for the affected one, so that we will be able to bring it back to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host multiple Internet sites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each website and is not active by default, 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 several mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to manage and shield your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
