It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are much 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 won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case 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 minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting solutions, so you could protect your websites with just a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default so as to avoid disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we can restore it to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host several websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every website and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and protect all your websites. In case that a site within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged Internet site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
