It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're much easier 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 immediately after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you can easily secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This will be really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it via 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 attacks.
