It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you need to 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 Cloud Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the 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 an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backups for the affected one, therefore we can restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You could enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly since we'll have several daily backups of the entire account.
