It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with just a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host multiple sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option should be activated for each and every site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and protect all your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected site before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
