Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites since these things make it considerably easier hack them. This will get worse in case you have a few different sites as all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of just one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates sites from each other. In case a website is compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all other Internet sites part of the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never substitute doing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will need to fix only one Internet site not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to pick which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default because you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential attacks.
