It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. If a secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.

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 because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
