Discover how you can use the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it can protect all your web sites.
It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this 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 case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace 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 Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud web hosting
solutions, so you'll be able to protect your sites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we can bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting
packages and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You could enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly as we will store several daily backups of the whole account.
