It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're 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 cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits 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 view any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute 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 any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a website hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various sites don't get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is very simple. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default simply because you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you could protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
