It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared website hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be far easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script which requires access to an additional folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we'll have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can easily recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default as you may use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you could protect all other sites by separating them from one another. It is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
