It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. 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'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different websites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If a secured site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay as 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 is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host a couple of Internet sites, you will be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option should be activated for every single site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure your websites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected website before you know it as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
