It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively 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 within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

We have included JailHost for all hosting solutions, so you could protect your websites with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, so that we can bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
