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 period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate is a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use a script which needs access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so we could easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host a couple of websites, you can easily isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and shield your Internet sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
