It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are 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 instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely 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 see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is much easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to maintain your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long as we'll have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so that we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use a specific script that accesses different folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without any difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your sites is hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it because of the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be blocked.
