It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're 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 examples, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your websites in a website hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. If any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it promptly as 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 Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly as we will keep a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
