It's not uncommon for many 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 cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just 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 access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you must 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 plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a big difference. You will be able to choose which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default simply because you might use an application which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
