It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud website hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add a further level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host a couple of sites, you'll be able to separate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to control and protect your sites. In case that a website in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
