It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will 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 allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every web hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be much easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to keep your websites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use some script that needs access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long as we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
