It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace 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 any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature 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 regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but securing all other folders is very simple. If a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it quickly because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was right away as we'll keep several daily backup copies of your entire account.
