Learn how you will be able to take full advantage of the "JailHost" option within your control panel and how it can protect all of your web sites.
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just 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 access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites inside a shared hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for various websites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. If any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was very quickly since we'll store several daily backups of your account.
