It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that 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 over the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, 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, yet it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so we will be able to recover it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default simply because you may use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you will be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. It is a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just 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 will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
