It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named 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 view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a 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, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Yet, the option will add an additional level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use some script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be blocked.
