It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on with just a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, yet you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your sites gets hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it using the several daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
