It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits 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 won't be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting plans that we offer and you can turn it on with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a big difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host multiple sites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option should be activated for every single website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to control and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the damaged site very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
