It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which needs accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so we could quickly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can easily secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
