It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely 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 see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should 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
If you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different websites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all the other folders is very simple. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you could activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was very quickly because we'll have a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
