It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult 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 difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the website hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any of the several daily backup copies 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 will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even when you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains 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 when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we will have a few daily backups of your entire account.
