It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting
account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it very quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you could secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
