It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient 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 see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to 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, so using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away as we'll have several daily backup copies of the whole account.
