It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because 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 instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn'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 the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was right away because we'll have several daily backup copies of your entire account.
