It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all plans and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different websites do not get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. If any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it in a short time because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of websites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to maintain and secure all of your sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged website very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
