It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect all of your sites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is very simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the affected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you can easily protect all other websites by separating them from one another. This will be super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
