It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect all of your Internet sites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very easy. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the affected one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you could activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time since we will have a few daily backup copies of the whole account.
