It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we will keep a couple of daily backups of your account.
