It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a script which accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it using the several daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be stopped.
