It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you can protect your sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to avoid interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backups for the infected one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default as you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you could protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future intrusions.
