It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host multiple websites, you will be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and secure your websites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
