It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to select which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning 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 quickly even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time because we'll store a couple of daily backups of the whole account.
