It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 view any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with every single web hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to maintain your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use a script that needs accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long as we will have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we could easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a certain script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it effortlessly through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from one another. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
