It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should always 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 Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to avoid disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host several sites, you will be able to isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your content.
