It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as 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 view any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting solutions, so you could protect all of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the infected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its initial state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you will be able to protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential attacks.
