It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting packages, so you could protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is very simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the affected one, which means that we can recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default since you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
