It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

If you host your websites within a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. If a secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it very quickly because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to manage and protect all of your websites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected site in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
