Learn how you will be able to use the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it can protect all your web sites.
It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not 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 Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all web hosting
plans, so you can protect all of your Internet sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really easy. Unlike some other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we always have several daily backups for the infected one, therefore we can recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, so if you host a couple of websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling 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 does not place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and secure all of your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website in no time as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
