It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively 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 see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content because you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional 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 could restore it fast and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use a certain script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it without difficulty through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from one another. If any of your websites gets hacked, we will promptly restore it because of the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
