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 isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting
solutions, so you can protect each of your sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike many other 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, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans come with JailHost integrated by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name because you may need to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any one of your sites is hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be blocked.
