Using outdated apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it easier hack them. This will get worse if you have several websites since all of them will be in danger when an attacker takes over just one of them. This is the reason why we have created JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates websites from each other. If a website gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to view or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the rest of the Internet sites in the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will not substitute carrying out frequent script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer and you can enable it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which 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 as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you will be able to protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
