It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the web hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with just a mouse 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 domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host several different sites, you can easily isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to manage and shield all your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
