It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using 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 enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different Internet 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 which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it promptly because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you might use an app that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you'll be able to secure all other sites by separating them from one another. This is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential attacks.
