It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate will be much easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script which requires accessibility to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host a couple of sites, you will be able to separate them from each other and keep them safe. This option must be activated for each and every site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to take care of and shield your websites. In case that a website inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged Internet site in no time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
