It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that 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 won't be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting solutions, so you could protect any of your Internet sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very quick. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we will have several daily backup copies of the whole account.
