It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost does not 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 limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an extra 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 fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and shield all your websites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site in no time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
