It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate will be quite easy. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your Internet sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use a script that needs accessibility to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several sites, you can isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and shield all your websites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
