It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 view any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all other folders is really easy. In case a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other 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 in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we'll keep a few daily backup copies of the entire account.
