It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security 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 Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting packages that we provide and you can activate it with only a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some website where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default as you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. It is quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
