It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is rather easy. Allowing JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to maintain your websites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script which needs access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for long as we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we could promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host several websites, you can isolate them from each other in order to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each and every site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to take care of and protect all of your websites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backups of your content.
