It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to maintain your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script that requires accessibility to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for long because we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host multiple sites, you can easily isolate them from each other to keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to maintain and protect all your sites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged website in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
