It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they're 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 cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case 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, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the web hosting packages that we provide and you could enable it with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any one 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 solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was right away because we'll keep a few daily backups of the whole account.
