Discover how you can use the "JailHost" option within your control panel and how it can protect your web sites.
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting
plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to select which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, the option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
solutions come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use some script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites because it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your websites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be blocked.
