It isn't uncommon for lots of 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 a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different websites never get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all the other folders is simple and easy. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it promptly as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so in case you host several different Internet sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each and every Internet site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and shield all of your websites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
