It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because 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 situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a major difference. You can pick which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you wish 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 Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may need to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your sites is hacked, we will promptly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
