It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which 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 within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is quite easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills to maintain your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script that requires accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long because we'll have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so we could quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host multiple sites, you can separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single website and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it simpler to maintain and secure your sites. In case that a site within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site very quickly as we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
