It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is really effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to recover it to its original state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly because we will store a couple of daily backups of the entire account.
