It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option named 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 access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect any of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we can recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default simply because you might use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you could secure all other websites by separating them from each other. This will be very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future attacks.
