It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've 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 access any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a big difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use some script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your websites is hacked, we can promptly restore it because of the multiple daily backups that we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be blocked.
