It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult 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 won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits 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 part of your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very easy. Unlike some other 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, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we will be able to recover it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may need to use a script that accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it with ease through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from one another. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we will promptly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be cut off.
