It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts 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 won't be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you should always 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 Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a secured website gets hacked for some reason, we will 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 from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default simply because you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you will be able to protect all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from future attacks.
