It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that 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, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict 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 provide and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate will be a lot easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires access to a different folder in 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 long because we'll have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so we could easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default since you may use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you will be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. It is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
