It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, so 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, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud website hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a big difference. You will be able to select which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use some script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your sites is hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be stopped.
