Discover how you could use the "JailHost" option inside your control panel and how it can protect your sites.
It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called 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 see any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting
packages, so you will be able to protect your websites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to avoid disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, so we can restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not enabled by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time since we'll keep a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
