It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect your websites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is very effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we will have multiple daily backups for the affected one, therefore we can recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
