It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just 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 view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all other folders is really easy. In case a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover 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 Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an application which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential attacks.
