Learn how you can use the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it could protect all your web sites.
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites since these things make it much easier to hack them. This will get worse in case you have a lot of websites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates sites from each other. In case a site gets compromised, its attacker will be unable to find or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the other Internet sites part of the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option will never be a substitute for carrying out regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting
account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites don't get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all the other folders is really easy. In case a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it quickly since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so if you host a couple of sites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to control and secure all of your websites. In case that a website within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected site in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
