It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just 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, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different websites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is simple and easy. If any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it very quickly since we'll 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 Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away since we will have a couple of daily backup copies of the whole account.
