It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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