It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but securing all of the other folders is very easy. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so in case you host several different Internet sites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much simpler to manage and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged website very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
