It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which 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 access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites within a hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. In case any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it without delay since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly since we will store a few daily backups of your account.
