It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all other folders is very easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly since we'll store several daily backup copies of the whole account.
