It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because 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 situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed inside a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your websites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use some script which needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default as you might use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you could secure all other sites by separating them from one another. It is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future intrusions.
