Using out-of-date applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your sites because these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things can get even worse when you have multiple Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. For this reason we have developed JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates websites from each other. In case an Internet site is compromised, the attacker will be unable to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all other Internet sites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option will never substitute performing regular script updates or using proper passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you could have some website where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default simply because you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you could secure all other sites by separating them from each other. It is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future intrusions.
