It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called 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 will not be able to access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

We have included JailHost for all hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect your websites with just a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we'll be able to restore it to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default because you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can secure all other websites by separating them from one another. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
