It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that 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 access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your Internet sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since 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 Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may wish to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be stopped.
