Find out how you can take full advantage of the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it could protect all of your sites.
It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your 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 small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting
solutions, so you can protect any of your websites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so that we can restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use some script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any one of your websites is hacked, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
