It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different sites do not get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it quickly since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host multiple websites, you can easily separate them from each other to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each website and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to take care of and secure all your sites. In case that a website in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
