It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since 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 situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits 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 in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we'll keep several daily backups of your account.
