It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply 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 examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts 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 will not be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can choose which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content because you may have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can easily secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
