It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host multiple sites, you can isolate them from each other to keep them safe. The option must be activated for every single Internet site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to control and protect your Internet sites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged Internet site in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
