It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not 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 website and from that point on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a big difference. You can select which sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default because you might use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you can easily protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
