It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting plans that we provide and you could enable it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost can make a significant difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default because you might use an app which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This is a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
