It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're 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 examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to select which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly because we will store a few daily backups of the whole account.
