It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace 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 Web Hosting

We have included JailHost for all web hosting packages, so you could protect any of your websites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, so that we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default since you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you could protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
