It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
In case you host your sites in a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is really easy. If any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it without delay since 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 will be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default simply because you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you could protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
