It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only 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 see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a big difference. You can select which websites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you could secure all other websites by separating them from each other. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
