It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all packages and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different sites never get mixed up as it usually 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 could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. If a secured site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it easily because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you can separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to maintain and protect your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged Internet site before you know it as we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
