Discover how you'll be able to use the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it can protect your sites.
It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud website hosting
account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. If any protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to control and shield your websites. In case that a website in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
