It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to 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 choose which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may wish to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of 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 sites in the same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your sites is hacked, we can promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
