It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting packages, so you could protect each of your websites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, so we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default as you might use an app which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you'll be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future intrusions.
