It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits 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 will not be able to see any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add a further level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
