It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing 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 allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is far easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to keep your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which needs accessibility to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long because we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so in case you host multiple websites, you can easily isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to control and protect your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site before you know it because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
