It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that 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 site and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively 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 inside your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

We have included JailHost for all web hosting solutions, so you could protect any of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we'll be able to restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default because you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you will be able to protect all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
