It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit the 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 could turn it on with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you could secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
