It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default since you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you could protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
