It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your sites with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked site 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 can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
