It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate will be much easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which requires accessibility 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 affected for long because we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so that we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default as you may use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you can protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from future attacks.
