It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with every single cloud web hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is much simpler. Activating JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use a script which needs access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long because we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we could promptly restore 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 as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default as you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you could secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. It is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
