It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all website hosting packages, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default simply because you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can easily protect all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
