It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of 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 sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you could activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was in no time since we'll have a couple of daily backup copies of your account.
