It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate will be incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script that needs access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long since we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily through 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 Internet sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be blocked.
