It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts 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 in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a single 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, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host multiple Internet sites, you can separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each Internet site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to control and protect all of your sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website in no time as we will have multiple backups of your content.
