It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could enable it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to manage and secure all your sites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected website before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your content.
