It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace 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 restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the website hosting packages that we offer and you can activate it with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a big difference. You can choose which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a certain script which accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites because it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your sites gets hacked, we can quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be cut off.
