It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit 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 could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You will be able to select which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you could have some website where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default simply because you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you will be able to protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
