It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case 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, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a website hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it promptly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

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 as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you will be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from future intrusions.
