It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you could protect each of your Internet sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is very quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was without delay as we will have a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
