Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites as these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse in case you have multiple sites as all of them will be in danger if an attacker takes over only one of them. For this reason we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates sites from each other. In case a website is compromised, the attacker will not be able to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the other websites in the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option doesn't be a substitute for performing frequent script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site and not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a major difference. You'll be able to select which sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you'll be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
