It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a shared web hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it without delay as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host a couple of sites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and shield all your sites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged Internet site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your content.
