It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we always have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its original state within a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even if you lack 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 widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was right away as we'll have several daily backups of the whole account.
