It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all plans and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different sites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other websites by separating them from each other. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
