It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all the other folders is very simple. If any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it without delay because 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

All our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may wish to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without any difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your sites is hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be blocked.
