It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different websites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is really easy. If any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it easily because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we'll keep several daily backup copies of your entire account.
