It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other websites which are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we offer and you can activate it with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content because you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default because you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you could secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This will be really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
