It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since 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 won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only 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 within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll quickly restore it using the several daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be cut off.
