It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate will be a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to keep your sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires access to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long since we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can easily secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
