It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared web hosting plans that we offer and you can enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some website where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use some script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you can activate it effortlessly through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any one of your websites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
