It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that 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 view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you can enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some website where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the 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 could recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host several Internet sites, you can easily isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every website and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to maintain and shield all your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected website in no time since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
