It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits 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 access any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be far easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to maintain your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have several daily backups for it all the time, so we could quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you might use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can protect all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. It is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
