It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to pick which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default simply because you might use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can protect all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. It is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future intrusions.
