Using out-of-date apps or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your Internet sites since these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse if you have multiple sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we've created JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates websites from each other. In the event that an Internet site is compromised, its attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all other sites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option doesn't substitute performing frequent script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website rather than all of them.

JailHost in Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all hosting solutions, so you can protect your sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, so that we can restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default because you may use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can easily secure all other websites by separating them from one another. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
