It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just 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 inside 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, yet it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You can select which sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly because we'll keep several daily backups of your account.
