It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all plans and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. In case a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You could activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately because we'll have a couple of daily backup copies of your account.
