It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for various sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. If a secured Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you'll be able to protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future intrusions.
