It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins 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 website and following that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, 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, but it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you could activate it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nevertheless, the option 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 restore it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may wish to use some script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple websites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from one another. If any one of your sites gets hacked, we'll quickly restore it because of the several daily backups that we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
