It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really simple. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we can bring it back to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning 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 easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was in no time since we will keep a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
