It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted in the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any 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 offer and protect your sites against attacks really 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 other Control Panels, the content is not mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script that requires access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we can easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can easily protect all other websites by separating them from one another. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
