It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're 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 situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add a further level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you can separate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, in order 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 several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to control and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged website in no time because we will have multiple backups of your content.
