Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites since these things make it much easier to hack them. Things will get even worse if you have a few different websites since all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of just one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates Internet sites from each other. If an Internet site is compromised, the attacker will not be able to see or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the other sites part of the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option won't replace doing routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one site and not all of them.
JailHost in Hosting
If you host your websites within a hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is really easy. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it quickly because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host a couple of websites, you'll be able to separate them from one another and keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single website and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and secure all your websites. In case that a website inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your content.
