It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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 access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nevertheless, 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 Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default as you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you could protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
