It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all web hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike many other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we can bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you might use an application which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. It is a piece of cake because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future attacks.
