It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case 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, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host multiple websites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to control and protect your websites. In case that a site within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site in no time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
