It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you can turn it on with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you may have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups 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 a couple of sites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to maintain and protect your websites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the damaged website very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
