It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because 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 instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting plans that we provide and you could enable it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default because you may use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you will be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly 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 potential future intrusions.
