It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only 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 see any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting packages, so you could protect each of your websites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we'll have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we'll store a few daily backups of the whole account.
