It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different sites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it in a short time since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately since we'll have a couple of daily backups of your entire account.
