It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer and you can enable it with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default as you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you could protect all other websites by separating them from each other. It is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
