It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it without delay because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host a couple of sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and shield all of your Internet 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 recover the affected website in no time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
