It's not uncommon for a lot of 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 period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called 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 see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you can protect each of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately because we'll have a couple of daily backup copies of the entire account.
