Discover how you could take full advantage of the "JailHost" option inside your control panel and how it can protect your websites.
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to 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 Hosting
We have included JailHost for all hosting packages, so you can protect each of your sites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we can restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
