It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You can select which sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host several different Internet sites, you will be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to maintain and shield your sites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
