It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which 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 part of your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting packages that we offer and you can enable it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly because we'll store a few daily backups of the entire account.
