It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various Internet sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default since you may use an app that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you will be able to protect all other sites by separating them from each other. It is a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
