It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is much simpler. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to maintain your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we could easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default since you may use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other sites by separating them from one another. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
