It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single web hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be much simpler. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your Internet sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script which requires accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backups for it all of the time, so we can promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may wish to use a certain script which accesses different folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we can promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be stopped.
