It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different sites never 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 can interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is very easy. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it in a short time since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was without delay as we will store several daily backups of the entire account.
