It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have 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 won't be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost won't replace 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 limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick 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 many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script that needs access to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long as we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we can easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host a couple of sites, you will be able to separate them from one another and keep them safe. This option should be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to maintain and protect your websites. In case that an Internet site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
