It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting packages that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even if you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was right away as we'll keep several daily backup copies of the entire account.
