It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on with just a 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 very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can select which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some website where you would like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add one more level of security to your sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could restore it really easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time as we'll store several daily backup copies of the entire account.
