Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it easier hack them. Things will get even worse when you have a couple of sites because all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates websites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, its attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all other sites part of the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never be a substitute for carrying out routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website and not all of them.
JailHost in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a website hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it in a short time since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away as we will keep several daily backups of the whole account.
