It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which 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 control of the website and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different sites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all the other folders is simple and easy. In case a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was very quickly because we'll have several daily backups of the entire account.
