It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a 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 websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your sites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we can recover it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we will promptly restore it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be blocked.
