It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites do not get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all other folders is very easy. If any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default as you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
