It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because 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 examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only 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 inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any 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 can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a big difference. You can choose which sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you might use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can easily protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet 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 site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future attacks.
