It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites 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. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with every single hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use some script that needs access to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long because we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we can promptly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
