It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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 part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all hosting packages, so you could protect any of your sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default so as to avoid disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default simply because you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. It is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
