Find out how you could use the "JailHost" option inside your control panel and how it can protect your websites.
It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which 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, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use some script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we'll be able to quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
