It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different sites never get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is very simple. If any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default since you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you will be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future intrusions.
