It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default as you might use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential attacks.
