It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've 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 Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within 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 that files for various websites don't get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it promptly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few 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 simply because you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you will be able to secure all other sites by separating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future attacks.
