It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

If you host your sites within a website hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. If any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host a couple of Internet sites, you will be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to maintain and secure your websites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your content.
