It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use some script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites since it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be separated from one another. If any one of your sites gets hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it using the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be cut off.
