Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your websites since these things make it much easier to hack them. This will get worse in case you have a lot of sites because all of them will be in danger when an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates Internet sites from each other. In the event that an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or access any other content outside the site folder, so all other websites part of the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option does not be a substitute for carrying out regular script updates or using proper passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect each of your sites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very easy. Unlike some other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the infected one, so we will be able to restore it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you will be able to isolate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to take care of and secure all of your sites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged website in no time since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
