It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it easily as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host several different sites, you can easily isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option should be activated for each website and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and protect your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
