It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're 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 will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is very easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it very quickly since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly as we'll keep several daily backup copies of your account.
