It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a web hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different sites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it in a short time since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host multiple websites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for each and every Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and secure all your sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected site before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your content.
