It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a single 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 single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host several different sites, you can separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each and every site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to take care of and secure your Internet sites. In case that a website inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
