It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting packages that we provide and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your websites gets hacked, we will be able to almost instantly restore it using the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
