It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your websites with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its initial state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another and keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every Internet site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and protect all of your sites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
