It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that 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, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various websites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it promptly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host several different websites, you can easily separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to control and protect your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged website in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
