It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect all of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, so we'll be able to restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you could secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from future attacks.
