It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you need to 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 Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it 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 and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add one more 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 restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may want to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple websites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your sites gets hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
