It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the web hosting packages that we provide and you could turn it on with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use this feature 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 access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default simply because you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you will be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future intrusions.
