It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn'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 allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting packages, so you can protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other websites is very effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we can restore it 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 will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly since we'll store a couple of daily backups of the whole account.
