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 plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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 part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security 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 any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various sites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. In case any protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it easily since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly since we'll keep several daily backup copies of your account.
