It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared hosting packages, so you could protect each of your Internet sites with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike many 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, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the infected one, so that we'll be able to restore it to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default since you might use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you will be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from future intrusions.
