It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple 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 can activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future intrusions.
