It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case 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 minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will 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 restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different websites never get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all the other folders is very easy. If any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default since you might use an application which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can easily protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
