It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

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

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default since you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can easily protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore 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 attacks.
