It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect any of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, which means that we can bring it back to its original state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host multiple Internet sites, you will be able to isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option must be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to control and protect all of your websites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected site before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
