It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are 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 will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting plans that we offer and you can enable it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to select which sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
