It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different sites never 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 website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is simple and easy. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an app which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
