It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud website hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you could have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could restore it really easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you will be able to separate them from each other and keep them safe. This option must be activated for every single site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to control and shield your Internet sites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
