It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that 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 will not be able to access any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud web hosting plans, so you could protect any of your websites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to prevent interfering with any sites 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 websites is very quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default as you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you can easily secure all other websites by separating them from one another. It is quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
