It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case 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, thus 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, still it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different websites don't get mixed up as it quite 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 site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is very simple. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it without delay since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning 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 quickly even when you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of 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 in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly because we will keep several daily backup copies of your entire account.
