It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a website hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various sites don't get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is really easy. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it very quickly because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host several different sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every Internet site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to maintain and secure all of your websites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected website in a short time as we will have multiple backups of your content.
