It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it very quickly since we'll 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 our semi-dedicated server plans and you will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll 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 if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was without delay as we will have several daily backups of your entire account.
