It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should 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 by default with all the web hosting packages that we provide and you could enable it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add a further level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple websites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be stopped.
