It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow 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 activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You can select which websites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may want to use a script which accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
