It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much 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 very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just 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 view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should 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 Cloud Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your Internet sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use a script that requires accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we can easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default as you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to protect all other sites by separating them from one another. 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 websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential attacks.
