It's not unusual for lots of 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 examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should 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 Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting
packages that we offer and you can enable it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server
packages and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was very quickly because we'll have a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
