It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different sites do not get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is very easy. If any secured Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it quickly since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a certain script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites is hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be stopped.
