It's not uncommon for lots of 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 examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites never get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all other folders is very easy. In case any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it very quickly because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host a couple of Internet sites, you will be able to separate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every website and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to maintain and shield your sites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
