It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some website where you would like to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any of your websites gets hacked, we will almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be stopped.
