It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that 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 Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be rather easy. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs access to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long as we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so that we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an application which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can easily protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
