It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites 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 small. Needless to say, 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, still it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting
plans that we offer and you can enable it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You could activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly since we'll have a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
