It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the web hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your Internet 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 really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which 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 several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default since you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can easily protect all other sites by separating them from one another. It is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential attacks.
