It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use some script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we can almost instantly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
