It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you could protect each of your sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have several daily backups for the affected one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you will be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
