It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud web hosting packages that we offer and you can turn it on with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a significant difference. You can select which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any one 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 will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default since you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you'll be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This will be very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
