It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient 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 view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all plans and can be activated for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all other folders is really easy. If any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it very quickly since we will 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 of our semi-dedicated server plans and you will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was very quickly since we'll keep a few daily backup copies of the whole account.
